Parker Ranch Inc. announced the appointment of James "Jimmy" S. Greenwell and William "Bill" Maris to the company's board of directors.

They join board members Michael W. Gibson, Warren H. Haruki, Robert L. Hind III, Timothy E. Johns, chairman David H. McCoy, Brendan G. Moynahan, Randolph G. Moore, Herbert M. "Monty" Richards Jr. and Arthur C. Tokin.

Parker Ranch Inc. is the for-profit corporation that owns and operates the assets of the cattle ranch, real property development activities and other operating entities of the ranch. It was formed in 1995 to manage the for-profit activities of Parker Ranch.

Since 1992, Greenwell has served as president of two family-owned businesses: Palani Ranch Co. and Lanihau Properties LLC. Palani Ranch Co. is a cattle operation on the slopes of Hualalai that has been in the Greenwell family since 1850. Lanihau Properties manages development lands and real estate.

Maris joined Parker Ranch in November 2008 as its chief financial officer and was later appointed to serve as interim chief operating officer.

He will provide strategic planning leadership, long-range operating goals, strategies, plans and policies. Maris has been a certified public accountant and has served in a variety of financial positions on the Mainland and in Hawai'i.

"We are so pleased that Jimmy and Bill have joined our board of directors," McCoy said. "Jimmy's knowledge of the cattle industry and its rich history in our islands through generations of his own family coupled with his respected business skills make him an ideal addition to the Parker Ranch Inc. board at this important time."
