Grove Farm Announces Leadership Transition


February 7, 2023

Lihue, Kaua‘i, Hawai‘i – Grove Farm announced today that President & Chief Executive Officer, Warren H. Haruki, will be retiring from his position this month.

Haruki said, “To come home and work for 18 years to build a sustainable Kaua’i was truly rewarding. It is now time for a leadership transition to position Grove Farm for its exciting next chapter.”

“During my tenure, with the support of the Grove Farm staff, community leaders, partners, farmers, and ranchers, the company developed hundreds of homes, including workforce housing and new residential communities, to support Kaua’i families,” Haruki added. “Grove Farm also expanded to support a growing Kaua’i economy with an increasingly popular farmers market, a commercial kitchen for locally-created products, a range of educational programs, scholarships, and grants, and plans for a much-needed—and soon-to-come—adolescent drug treatment facility. I want to express my sincere appreciation to everyone who helped us launch these critically important initiatives. I look forward to seeing them continue to flourish—along with new Grove Farm efforts—in the years to come.”

“Grove Farm has always been an important part of the Kaua’i community, and I know that it will continue to build upon the accomplishments of the past 18 years with its new leadership,” said Steve Case, Owner of Grove Farm.
