Sean Wilson

Founder & CEO

Following his service in the Marine Corps, Sean identified the need for better quality security options for his community on the island of Maui. While others were going through the motions, he began offering high-quality, accountable and professional private security for visiting celebrities and small nightclubs. This hands-on experience shaped the future of Pono Security, where employees are driven by incentives, and companies have access to attentive management and lots of value for their investment. This mutually-beneficial “do what’s right” attitude towards business is the cornerstone of the effort, and what makes Pono truly different from the many other options in the security landscape.

Eric Waddell

Chief of operations

While working as the General Manager of a high-end restaurant in Maui, Eric became one of Pono’s earliest customers. Now, ten years later, he is developing a solid professional team while in relentless pursuit of success. His focus is both on high-caliber customer service today and growing a multi-generational business for the future.
