The Commish - Thos Rohr, Leading the Way

The Commish - Thos Rohr, Leading the Way

Waikoloa from 1988 - 2010

Developing a long range, big-picture project such as Waikoloa Beach Resort takes a leader with keen instinct, business acumen, and an abundance of sheer persistence. Those are traits that nicely sum up Thos Rohr, president and CEO of Waikoloa Land Company from 1988 to 2010. Known by friends and associates as “The Commish” — a nickname he earned for his resolute ability to manage and organize a field of prestigious celebrities and business executives at his high-profile golf tournaments; “they were like herding cats!” he says — Rohr is widely regarded as someone who set new standards in the leisure hospitality industry in Hawai`i during his long career.
