Leadership Team

Eric von Platen Luder


Born in Hawaii and raised in the restaurant (almost literally), Eric has been in the business his entire life. He strives to position each brand as a part of the community — recognizing that there is no success without the local community.

Scott Dodd


After 28 years in the islands with a background in luxury resorts, Scott enjoys developing the vision for new projects and seeing the management team bring them to life. Details matter and Scott’s focus is always on the guest experience.

Nick Roschi

Director of Operations

Since landing in the islands over 12 years ago, Nick has climbed the corporate ladder in each organization where he worked before joining us. He came aboard at the conceptual start of Lava Lava Beach Club and now oversees all operations.

Ken Schloss

Director of Culinary &
Corporate Chef

Hailing from the culinary hotbed of the Bay Area, Ken gained experience in diversity…from cruise ships to wine trains. His organizational efficiency, relationships with local vendors and strong leadership inspire our culinary team.

Marlo McGuire

Director of Finance

Marlo gained his experience at turning poor performing units into profit centers from his hospitality background on the mainland and here in Hawaii. He is responsible for financial planning and strategies at all Luana Hospitality Group entities.

Jason Hensrud

Director of Facilities

Upkeep of Luana Hospitality Group’s oceanfront facilities and equipment warehouses is a challenge Jason embraces. He leads his maintenance team to keep all entities running in top shape.
