HTA names interim CEO

The Hawaii Tourism Authority named Lloyd Unebasami its interim president and CEO, replacing Rex Johnson, who resigned last Wednesday.

Unebasami, who took over the post on Thursday, has served as chief administrative officer for the HTA since 2000 and before that held various state government rolls.

A search committee has been formed by the HTA to find a permanent replacement for Johnson, who resigned last week after coming under fire for forwarding sexist, racist and pornographic emails on his office computer.
