Pono Security was hired to patrol our property at night starting in April 2020 and has performed extremely well during the first 5 months. The 4 different guards that have come onto our property have followed the specific protocol we have created for them. They provide a photo gallery of each visit (4 times each evening) and politely escort anyone that does not belong off of our property.

I've worked with Pono Security for over a year and a half now. They are quick to adapt to every situation and communication is highly valued by me and my staff. Their daily reports are complete and informative showing every step made during each guard's shift. The guards are friendly and work to please our guests and help in each situation presented. I highly recommend them. Victoria Reyes, CMCA, AMS - Maui Vista, Kihei, Maui

Our Team

Sean Wilson - Founder and CEO

Following his service in the Marine Corps, Sean identified the need for better quality security options for his community on the island of Maui. While others were going through the motions, he began offering high-quality, accountable and professional private security for visiting celebrities and small nightclubs. This hands-on experience shaped the future of Pono Security, where employees are driven by incentives, and companies have access to attentive management and lots of value for their investment. This mutually-beneficial “do what’s right” attitude towards business is the cornerstone of the effort, and what makes Pono truly different from the many other options in the security landscape.

Eric Waddell - COO

While working as the General Manager of a high-end restaurant in Maui, Eric became one of Pono’s earliest customers. Now, ten years later, he is developing a solid professional team while in relentless pursuit of success. His focus is both on high-caliber customer service today and growing a multi-generational business for the future.
