Real Estate and Finance Professionals Pau Hana in Los Angeles

Erin Teruya ’93 Kinney

A Mexican cantina in Century City was a great locale for a casual networking event for alumni real estate and finance professionals in Southern California. About 40 alumni from the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, ’00s and ’10s attended.

The alumni work in private equity, investment banking, commercial real estate, marketing and finance. Alumni hosts from the different decades helped greet and introduce attendees to each other.

“This pau hana provided an opportunity to branch out and truly meet new people,” said Kekai Nu‘uhiwa ’11, a finance officer in the U.S. Air Force. “The venue was great and was a very relaxed atmosphere to talk and eat with people. As someone who is in a unique situation and does finance as an active duty officer in the military, this was a huge opportunity to learn a little more about the corporate side of finance.”

Alumni attendees were encouraged to continue the conversation on Punahou Connect, the online professional networking tool for Punahou alumni.
