Experience brings the strength


Executive Director

Brandon Ili is a second generation member of Local 3.  He started in the apprenticeship program in 1992, then worked for Ron’s Construction where he eventually became a foreman.  He started working for the Hawaii Operating Engineers Industry Stabilization Fund as the Oahu Compliance Officer in 2013, then became a Business Agent for District 17 before becoming HOEISF’s Executive Director in June 2021.

Here at HOEISF, we support, promote, and encourage fair contracting and provide a level playing field in the public arena for both contractor and workers.

We will continue to move forward with compliance and lobbying to ensure a great future for our great local.

Throughout the years he has also served on various campaign committees.




Big Island Representative

Wayne Perrin Jr. worked in the public county sector for over twenty years before finally joining Local 3 in 2003, starting off as an oiler for Kobayashi.  He eventually found himself working for Hensel Phelps in 2016, where he worked his way up to the Operator Foreman before joining the Hawaii Operating Engineers Industry Stabilization Fund as the Big Island Representative in June 2021.

As the Stabilization Representative for Hawaii County, I will continue to ensure that prevailing wage laws are in compliance, maintain our relationships within government as well as with developers.
