By Karen Robes Meeks

At Matson Inc.’s annual shareholders’ meeting last week, it was announced that Servco Pacific Inc. Chairman and CEO Mark H. Fukunaga had been elected as a new member of the Honolulu-based company’s Board of Directors.

“We are excited to welcome Mark Fukunaga as the newest member of the Matson board and know that his demonstrated business leadership and deep roots in our community further strengthen an already experienced board,” Matson Chairman and CEO Matt Cox said.

Cox also announced that the board's independent directors have designated Stanley M. Kuriyama to be lead independent director, replacing Jeffrey N. Watanabe, who retired from the board.

“Speaking on behalf of our entire board and the executive leadership team at Matson, we owe a deep debt of gratitude to Jeff (Watanabe) and thank him for his 15 years of service and strong guidance during a very important period in our company's 136-year history,” Cox said.
