“Hawai‘i Pacific University offers a unique learning experience that prepares students to thrive in a changing, global society,” said Hawaiian Telcom CEO Michael Ruley, who was recently elected to HPU’s Board of Trustees. “It is a privilege to be part of HPU’s efforts to serve Hawai‘i by helping students succeed,” Ruley added.

“ Mr. Ruley is a highly successful business leader in the corporate community,” said HPU President Chatt G. Wright. “HPU is extremely pleased he has accepted our invitation to become part of the state’s largest private university,” Wright added.

Currently, Ruley is on the Boards of Directors for the Blood Bank of Hawai‘i; Child and Family Services; Hawai‘i Business Roundtable, USS Missouri Memorial Association, Inc.; and the United States Telecom Association. He is a member of the Japan-Hawai‘i Economic Council, the Hawai‘i Asia Pacific Association, and Young Presidents’ Organization International.

Prior to joining Hawaiian Telcom, Ruley served as president and CEO of NextiraOne, a North American voice and data solutions business. He has held various positions with XO Communications and Teleport Communications Group.

Hawai‘i Pacific University is the state’s largest private university with more than 8,000 students from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. HPU offers more than 60 undergraduate and graduate academic programs and is fully accredited.
