VITEC founder, director Lois Greenwood retiring

Advertiser Staff

Two decades after establishing the Maui Visitor Industry and Training Center, Lois Greenwood is retiring.

"I feel like I've made my contribution. I'm leaving the program in good hands," said the longtime center director who founded the program in 1989.

The Visitor Industry and Training Center, known to most as VITEC, evolved under Greenwood's leadership to reflect changes in Maui's job and work force training needs.

Initially founded to assist workers in hotel management and other positions, VITEC now serves as a base for continuing education in business and technology while also providing personal enrichment courses for adults.

Today, VITEC stands for the Vital Innovative Training & Economic Development Center.
