Richard Eshleman appointed CEO of Hawai‘i Information Service

After serving in an interim capacity since February 2010, Richard Eshleman has been formally appointed as CEO of MLS Hawai‘i (aka Hawai‘i Information Service), a press release announced.

Eshleman was signed to a two-year term by its  board of directors in March. He previously served for seven years as controller and COO of HIS before stepping in as interim CEO last February.

“It has been a distinct honor to help lead this company through some of the more challenging times in our industry, challenges that have inspired our team to refocus and redouble its efforts to serve our members and the local real estate community as a whole,“ Eshleman said. “I look forward to continuing our company’s long history of service and excellence.”

Before joining HIS, Eshleman worked at two firms in San Diego that saw significant growth during his tenure. He was CFO of San Diego-based Daycom Systems, a telecommunications equipment company, that saw sales grow from 5 to 30 million. He also served as director of finance and administration for Scentibodies Lab, a medical diagnostics manufacturer that grew from 50 to over 300 employees.
