Allen Doane is one of Hawaii’s top-ranking corporate executives. Allen has worked in various companies prior to his current tenure as chairman and chief executive officer of Alexander & Baldwin, Inc., one of the oldest and largest corporations and the only surviving Big Five company in the state. He holds an extensive academic qualification from some of the country’s prestigious universities.

Through Allen’s leadership, Alexander & Baldwin has given more than four million dollars to charities in Hawaii and the Pacific in the last two years. Allen is a director of First Hawaiian Bank and Pacific Guardian Life Insurance Company. He also serves on the boards of a number of community organizations.

Allen likens his job as CEO to a compass, setting the direction of the whole organization. But being the top honcho of the company, he still leaves many of the corporate decisions to the hands of the board of directors, effectuating a democratic approach to corporate management.

To Allen, it is a strong family background and the natural curiosity to accomplish things that he attributes to a successful career in the corporate world. According to Allen, he never displayed extraordinary talents nor performed well academically during his formative years.

“I graduated in the bottom quarter of my high school class and it was a public high school in Philadelphia. In my high school annual they had all the list of accomplishments of different people and there was a blank on my name. There was not anything,” he said. “I was not even in the Glee club, I was not on the football team, I was not an academic all-star and there are lots and lots of reasons for that but I would say that probably for me, the key was a very strong family background which was supportive of me even though there was not a lot to show for it and I think just a natural curiosity and interest in doing things.”

Greater Good Television brings Allen Doane, chairman and CEO of Alexander & Baldwin, and director of First Hawaiian Bank and Pacific Guardian Life Insurance Company.
