OluKai CEO Jim Harris has been selected as one of Goldman Sachs 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs of 2015. Harris—and his passion for the surf lifestyle brand—was honored at the Goldman Sachs Builder + Innovators Summit (Oct. 14-16) in Santa Barbra, Calif., a two-day event attended by business leaders from multiple industries.
Under Harris’ leadership, OluKai has developed from being a startup to a nationally recognized brand, and has established the brand as a model for corporate citizenship. The brand has contributed to a number of giveback programs, becoming a certified B Corporation, and most recently established the Ama OluKai Foundation in Hawaii.
“Being recognized in this way is primarily a testament to the passion and innovation of every member of the OluKai team,” said Jim Harris in a press release. “Creating a culture that unlocks the maximum potential of everyone in the organization is what I’m most proud of at OluKai.”
