Fresh Island Fish, Hawaii’s largest seafood distribution company, recently named Tim Campbell (pictured) as the company’s chief executive officer. The company’s founder and former C.E.O., Bruce Johnson, will become chairman of the board, with plans to expand the business into emerging markets. Campbell, who is Johnson’s nephew, brings more than 30 years of commercial real estate and marketing experience to the company, most recently serving as the western regional managing director for GE Capital.

She was married to, and predeceased by, Jack Harris, the owner of the Terrace Restaurant located in Kahana.

Irene's career was in banking and finance, and her passions were gardening; her cat, Sam; her family; and the people she loved.
