Say Ahola To These Locals

Say Ahola To These Locals

By Ross Boissoneau

Surviving winter? A small group of locals have figured it out, and have developed recurring or even permanent connections to the Aloha State.

Paul Sutherland, chairman and CEO at Traverse City-based FIM Group, actually established an office on Maui 20 years ago.
