Glenn K.L. Yee, a veteran financial officer and executive for several Hawaii businesses, has been named chief financial officer of Island Air, the interisland airline purchased by Oracle CEO Larry Ellison earlier this year.

“Glenn is a highly respected corporate finance figure in Hawaii and is [a] great addition to our evolving Island Air team,” Island Air CEO Paul Casey said in a statement. “He brings with him the experience Island Air needs to expand into a modern interisland air carrier that will serve not only visitors, but residents who depend on air travel to move between the islands.”

Yee joined Island Air on July 8, the company said Thursday. He was most recently the chief financial officer and treasurer for Steeltech Inc., a Hawaii specialty contractor focusing on the design and construction of industrial and commercial buildings. Before that, he was the vice president of finance for Hawaiian Dredging Construction Co. Inc., and has also held executive positions at Persis Corp. and other Hawaii companies.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help build a much-needed, strong alternative airline for Hawaii,” Yee said. “I’m inspired by the vision that Paul Casey has not only for Island Air but for the Hawaii visitor industry and by their response to the need for island residents to have a dependable and affordable means of interisland travel.”

Yee holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in accounting from the University of Hawaii. He is a certified public accountant and a certified construction industry financial professional and has served as past president and board member of the Hawaii chapter of Financial Executives International as well as the Construction Financial Management Association.
