Scott Glenn was appointed to serve as director of the Office of Environmental Quality Control Thursday by Governor David Ige.

Glenn will begin his duties in the role beginning in November after having his appointment confirmed by the senate.

“Scott is passionate about working with diverse stakeholders to plan together for a better shared future. His education, work experience, and volunteer service have prepared him to make a difference in this position,” said Governor Ige.

Since 2010, Glenn has served as an environmental planner at Cardo, a position he will be leaving. In his role, he focused on the intersection of planning, asset management, and risk analysis in his client’s strategic decision making.


Under his role, Glenn has managed project budgets and held key roles on multiple multi-million dollar projects for clients in the public and private sector.

Recently, Glenn has been focused on integrating climate change adaptation into federal asset decision-making tools.

“I am humbled to serve as the director and thankful to the Governor for the opportunity. The office has a key role in the stewardship of our environment and economy. I look forward to bringing a collaborative approach grounded in technical expertise to the office and working with my fellow board members on the Environmental Council to reach out to the public and all stakeholders,” said Glenn.


In addition to his professional positions, Glenn serves as vice chair and past chair of the Sierra Club Hawai’i Chapter and the State Environmental Council. He also co-founded and was the president of Better Block Hawai’i, a non-profit dedicated to exploring collaborative, innovative approaches to improving urban livability.

Glenn earned a B.A. in philosophy and classical archaeology from the University of Evansville and a Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Hawai‘i. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners.
