Inkinen is assisting Pacific Resource Partnership (PRP) with their search for an Executive Director.


Pacific Resource Partnership is a dynamic and influential organization committed to supporting Hawaii’s construction industry. As a fund of the Hawaii Regional Council of Carpenters (HRCC), PRP represents the largest construction union in the State of Hawaii, encompassing more than 6,000 carpenters and 250 signatory general contractors, which range from local, family-owned businesses to large national corporations. PRP’s mission is to obtain and maintain work for signatory contractors, thereby creating employment opportunities for HRCC member carpenters. PRP impacts the entire state of Hawaii, where its members build homes and businesses, create neighborhoods, revitalize communities, and strengthen infrastructure.

PRP plays a crucial role in advocating for fair labor standards, promoting compliance, and fostering relationships with government, business, and community leaders. Through innovative programs such as the Executive Leadership Series, the Partners for Democracy program, and comprehensive workforce development initiatives, PRP not only supports the construction industry but also contributes to the broader economic and social well-being of Hawaii.


The Executive Director (ED) of PRP offers a unique opportunity for a strategic and visionary leader to guide a well-respected organization toward continued growth and success. Reporting directly to the Trustees of the Hawaii Carpenters Market Recovery Program Fund, the ED will oversee all operations, functions, and activities of PRP. The role requires an innovative, entrepreneurial leader who can develop a compelling vision, craft and execute strategic plans, and build strong cross-sector relationships.

The unique partnership between labor and management makes PRP a powerful advocate for responsible land use, development, and housing policy in Hawaii. Its expertise in research, industry relations, and project advocacy build communities with a stronger, more sustainable future. As the leader of PRP, the ED’s efforts will promote a vibrant economy, create jobs, and improve the quality of life for all Hawaii residents.
