Bettina Mehnert

FAIA, LEED AP

President, CEO

A respected visionary and leader, Bettina is an indomitable force in the evolution and innovation in Hawai‘i's architectural sector. Her novel philosophy of practice blends IT solutions, firm culture, client cultivation, and community service as inseparable filaments of professional leadership, keeping her 72-year-old firm firmly faced towards the future. Taking community service beyond the annual donation and fundraiser template, Bettina also instituted a 1% pro bono program, by which the firm annually donates 1% of its billable hours to a worthy project. An adventure seeker who loves unstructured travel and long-distance runs, Bettina can be found traveling to run routes and races anywhere from a couple miles to marathons. Runs allow her to “think clearly and recharge for the busy day ahead.’’
