Inkinen is assisting Damien Memorial School with their search for a President.


Founded in 1962 and sponsored by the Congregation of Christian Brothers, Damien Memorial School is a Catholic, independent, college-preparatory school that serves students in grades six through twelve. Damien’s mission is to guide students from all walks of life to become responsible, respectful, community-minded, faith-filled men and women who are prepared to excel in higher education and are ready for the challenges in their future. They are fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA), and the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools (HAIS).


Damien Memorial School seeks a visionary, accomplished, and transformative leader to partner with the Sponsor Council and Board of Directors to build upon Damien’s reputation as a leader in Catholic education. The next President will have a strong and collaborative team in place that is eager to support new leadership. To qualify for this exceptional opportunity, any candidate will have to be a practicing Catholic and accomplished servant leader with a passion for the vital mission of Catholic schools. An ideal candidate must have an entrepreneurial spirit and a creative growth mindset.

The primary responsibility of the President is to maintain the Mission of the School as a key part of the teaching ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Honolulu and the Edmund Rice Christian Brothers North America. This responsibility is guided through the implementation of The Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Christian Brothers Education.

As Chief Executive Officer of the school, the President has general charge and control of its business and properties; signs and executes contracts and other written instruments in the name of the school as authorized by the Sponsor Council and/or the Board of Directors. The President directs all long‐range planning and is responsible for the financial stability of the school, institutional advancement, and community relations. As such, the President delegates the educational administration to the Principal; and public relations, recruitment, and fundraising to the Director of Institutional Advancement.  While respecting this delegation, the President works closely with the Board of Directors and with each of the administrators in formulating policies and setting direction and goals for Damien Memorial School as an exemplary Middle and Secondary Catholic School.
