Greg Hazelton joined Hawaiian Electric Industries (HEI), a bank and utility holding company, in 2013 with broad experience in both the regulated utility and competitive energy industries. He stepped away from a successful investment banking career for the opportunity to oversee HEI’s financial management and contribute to the company’s strategic direction during a time of environmental- and technology-led industry transformation. Greg is driven to use his talents to support HEI’s critical role in transforming the Hawaii economy to a more resilient, sustainable future and continuing Hawaii’s leadership in addressing climate change.
Previously, as a Managing Director in the Global Power & Utilities Group at UBS Investment Bank, Greg advised a diverse and international client base of energy-oriented companies and private equity firms on capital formation and strategic activities. Throughout his career Greg has consistently worked with innovative companies, development teams and entrepreneurs focused on renewable energy, new energy-based technologies and transformative business models. Greg’s professional career also includes nearly 12 years in management and executive roles with regulated utility companies, including Portland General Electric and NW Natural Gas.
In addition to his responsibilities at HEI, Greg serves on the board of the Aloha United Way and the Oahu Economic Development Board. Greg has an MBA from the University of Chicago and his CPA (non-practicing) from Oregon.
