Carlsmith Ball associate Lucas Love selected for inaugural Hawaii-Hiroshima Emerging Young Business Leaders Program

Lucas Love, an associate in Carlsmith Ball’s Tax practice group, participated in the inaugural Hawaii-Hiroshima Emerging Young Business Leaders program. The Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce sponsored the program.

Love, whose practice includes international tax and business planning for Japanese companies in Hawaii, was one of eight young business leaders from Hawaii who visited Hiroshima recently to learn about business and cultural practices unique to Japan.

Honolulu Japanese Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Wayne Ishihara led the Hawaii contingent. The group visited the Hiroshima governor’s office, a sake factory, and numerous small businesses as part of the program’s objectives to improve leadership competency, build cross-country relationships, learn the impact Japanese culture has had on Hawaii, and exchange Japanese and Hawaii values.

The program was created as part of the longstanding sister-state agreement between Hawaii and Hiroshima and is endorsed by the State of Hawaii’s Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism.
