Loren is a partner and CXO at High Tech Hui, LLC, a Hawaii-based cybersecurity and IT consulting firm. He has over 25 years of experience in technology and has held every position in IT from network tech to senior executive. Prior to joining HI Tech Hui, he was the CTO at Pacxa, a locally owned IT consulting firm. On his downtime, he’s a total fanboy and LOVES Star Trek, Marvel, DC, etc. I mean, he’s in IT and it’s law, right? But he also enjoys some cool stuff like trail running, free diving and body boarding so he’s not that big of a geek. When asked about his biggest strength in IT, he says it’s being able to explain technical concepts in normal person language.
