Haruguchi named engineering director at the Hyatt

PO’IPU — Brian Haruguchi was recently named new director of engineering at the Hyatt Regency Kaua’i Resort & Spa.

As director of engineering, he is responsible for overseeing the daily operations of wildlife, water features, landscaping and engineering divisions at the hotel, currently a total of 62 people.

Haruguchi began his career with Hyatt in 1986 as an engineering apprentice at the 815-room Hyatt Regency Maui. He completed the three-year apprentice program at the 1,241-room Hyatt Regency Waikoloa Resort & Spa on the Big Island in 1990.

He impressed his superiors with his tenacity and amazing leadership skills, they said. Those skills helped lead him to the position of first class engineer at Waikoloa, where he supervised the swing shift crew.

In 1991, he was transferred to the 797-room Grand Hyatt Wailea on Maui, where he rose through the ranks to senior director of engineering.

Haruguchi received his education at Maui Community College, where he studied gas and arc welding, blueprint reading, basic electricity and carpentry.

The Hyatt Regency Kaua’i Resort & Spa has 602 guest rooms, each with its own lanai. The resort includes six restaurants, six lounges, pool water features including a 150-foot water slide, a five-acre saltwater lagoon, tennis, ANARA Spa, and golf at the adjacent Po’ipu Bay Resort Golf Course.
