KIHEI, Hawai'i, June 16, 2008 – Hawaii Business magazine recently named Akimeka as one of the state’s “Best Places to Work 2008.” Akimeka finished in the top 10 in the medium-sized company category and was one of 70 businesses selected from a total of 250 organizations nominated for the award.
“This recognition is a great honor and reflects favorably on all our talented employees and the important work they are doing for our customers and in our communities,” said Vaughn Vasconcellos, Akimeka president and CEO.
