Kamehameha Schools' investment chief quits

By Andrew Gomes
Advertiser Staff Writer

Wendell Brooks Jr., chief investment officer for Kamehameha Schools, has resigned from Hawai'i's biggest private educational trust following disagreement about the estate's vision with newly appointed trustees.

Brooks, a local real estate veteran, will leave the estate Nov. 7.

Brooks joined Kamehameha Schools in February 2000 as chief of the trust's endowment group.

The trust's chief executive, Hamilton McCubbin, said a nationwide search is planned for a replacement to guide investments of the $6 billion estate.
