Paul Kosasa has lived through many crises, from 9/11 to the global pandemic, and through it all, he draws his strength from the memory of his parents who were interned in camps during World War II.
“Crisis is a learning opportunity. What can we learn from this?”
On this episode of the Voice of Business podcast presented by Altres, Kosasa shares how he started at the bottom and worked in the trenches, his humble leadership style, and personal values of hope and trust, and advice on how to continue to innovate for continued growth and success.
Kosasa is an American businessman, philanthropist and President and CEO of ABC Stores, a chain of resort convenience stores throughout Hawaii, Las Vegas and Guam. ABC Stores was founded by his parents, Sidney and Minnie Kosasa, in 1964 and currently employs over 1,500 people.
