Linda Collard, Executive Director

Ozawa was born and raised in Hawaii
Kai, and as the representative of Honolulu’s
District 4, which spans from Ala
Moana to Hawaii Kai, he utilizes all of
his education to better his community.
He currently resides in Hawaii Kai with
his wife, who is also a lawyer, and their
two daughters. Ozawa was recently recognized as
Leadership In the Industry: Young Achiever at the inaugural
Media Hawaii Lodging and Tourism Awards and
we wanted to pick his brain on leadership and receiving
this recognition.
Ozawa is a firm believer in servant leadership, where
the leader focuses on the well-being and growth of the
community rather than accumulation of power. In 1970,
Robert Greenleaf published an essay and coined the
term “servant leadership.”
“The servant-leader is servant first […] It begins with
the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve
first; then conscious choice brings one to aspire to
lead,” writes Greenleaf. “That person is sharply different
from one who is leader first, perhaps because of
the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire
material possessions.”
Greenleaf’s essay had a profound effect on Ozawa,
who learned about this style of leadership in the Pacific
Century Fellows program. In addition to being a graduate
of PCF, Ozawa is also a Kamehameha Schools
alum and has a B.A. in Economics from the University
of Southern California, as well as a law degree from
Suffolk University Law School in Boston.
