Mayor appoints planning chief

Advertiser Staff

Eric Crispin is the new director of planning and permitting for the city, pending confirmation by the City Council.

He replaces Randy Fujiki, who resigned in October to return to the private sector, Mayor Jeremy Harris said in a release yesterday.

Crispin, 44, has been deputy director of the Department of Design and Construction since January. Before that, he was a special assistant to DDC Director Rae Loui for about a year.

A licensed architect in Hawai'i and Brazil, Crispin previously was development manager at GMR, senior architect at Leo A. Daly and an associate at Group 70.

Crispin earned a bachelor of architecture degree at the Faculdade de Arquitetura e Urbanismo de Santos in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and is a graduate of Punahou School.

Harris described Crispin as "a talented planner and architect" with "a great deal" of experience.
