CEO & Executive Creative Director, Olomana Loomis-ISC - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
My role for ICOM: The opportunities in the region are as diverse culturally as they are geographically. I am fortunate to take on this role with an already strong ICOM presence and am looking forward to facilitating more cross-border opportunities between brands and countries. Being located in the middle of the Pacific is a huge advantage, strategically between two vast commercial powerhouses, North America and Asia-Pacific, the latter a region spanning from China, Japan and Korea in the north, to Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia in the south, and India in the west. My goal is to lay a stronger foundation for the region by recruiting a variety of like-minded agencies willing to grow the network while seeking more cross-border opportunities within the region, as well as connecting with the rest of the globe through our ICOM partners.

A local custom I like… is the Aloha spirit. It’s more than a greeting or an expression of love or caring in Hawaii. It is more than. It is a way of life that connects the land, the people, the culture, and our common values.
To make a name for yourself you have to… first serve others. Then, teach them to serve others. Your reputation is best determined by those whom you serve.
