A resident of Kaimuki, Guy joined The CHOI Group in 2016. He works with clients in the surrounding areas of East Honolulu and beyond. Guy has a long track record of exceptional professional service to a global clientele. He worked and lived in Asia for 20 years before moving to Hawai‘i in 2011. Most recently, he was based in Tokyo as President & CEO of the Japan and Korea offices of FCB, a U.S.-based, global advertising agency. Guy also served with FCB in Indonesia and Hong Kong handling Pan-Asian responsibilities.
Guy's career began in Toronto in Advertising for Y&R and JWT, and in Marketing for Unilever. He graduated with Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from the University of Western Ontario and with an MBA from York University in Toronto. He maintains close ties to Canada and is a shareholder and advisor with the Fine Wine Reserve in Toronto.
Guy also owns and operates Kona Lisa Coffee, a 10-acre coffee farm located in the heart of the Kona coffee belt on the Big Island of Hawai‘i (www.konalisacoffee.com). Through the relationships he has built, Guy began helping clients buy coffee farms on the Big Island, providing them with a beautiful and unique Hawaii life experience. In many cases, owning a coffee farm offers visa opportunities for foreign investors and a seamless transition to Hawai‘i living.
Guy has a warm, calm and disarming manner and he genuinely enjoys meeting and working with new clients. Guy’s wife Jane runs a catering business in Honolulu, specializing in authentic (and spicy!) Indonesian dishes (dabudabu.com). They have two young boys whose passions are baseball, soccer, tennis, and golf.
