Mark E. Agne, an investment banker with Goldman Sachs Inc, has joined The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii’s Board of Trustees, the organization announced today.
Agne is a Managing Director heading Equities in Japan and co-head of APAC Equity Trading for Goldman Sachs, where he has worked since 1999.
“We are honored that Mark has decided to join our board. He has the business experience and a personal love for Hawaii’s environment that will serve the community well,” said Kenton Eldridge, chair of the Conservancy’s Hawaiʻi Board.
Added Suzanne Case, the Conservancy’s Hawaii executive director: “We look forward to engaging with Mark further in the business of conservation. He has a deep appreciation for Hawaii’s environment and understands the contribution it makes to our economy and quality of life.”
Born and raised near Chicago, Agne is a graduate of Brown University where he studied economics and political science.
Agne first came to Hawaii 15 years ago and his love for islands led to his involvement with the Hawaii Community Foundation, where he has supported his two primary interests, education and the environment.
“I am honored to serve on The Nature Conservancy’s Hawaiʻi Board,” Agne said. “I have always admired the Conservancy’s logical, rigorous and efficient approach to conservation and the way it goes about effecting change. The organization has a remarkable record of accomplishment, and I look forward to building on that legacy.”
Agne and his wife, Tomoko, live in Tokyo and Honolulu. Agne enjoys hiking, swimming and stand-up paddle boarding. His two children, who are experienced snorkelers and avid beach goers, attend Punahou School First Grade and Central Union Preschool.
