Looks like the star that is Imua Family Services Executive Director Dean Wong just keeps getting brighter. “Imua Family Services is proud to announce Executive Director Dean Wong’s selection as one of Hawaii Business Magazine’s 20 for the next 20 class of 2015,” stated a Mar. 9 Imua news release. “These ‘People to Watch’ come from a variety of fields including: business, public service, law, entrepreneurship, education, government service or elsewhere… Wong’s fundraising strategies, combined with his colorful personality, have ushered Imua into a new era.”
Wong has served as Imua’s executive director for the past four years. The organization itself, which provides services for the county’s children with special needs, began in 1947.
“I hear myself constantly saying, Oh this is just the beginning, there is so much more to do,” said Wong. “I’m just getting started. I feel like this recognition affirms that.”
Imua’s annual gala, known as the Fantasia Ball, takes place April 3, 2015. Following that, Imua will hold the grand opening of its new 10,000-square foot home on South Wakea Avenue in Kahului, Maui.
