`ike is thrilled to formally introduce the newest member of the `ike family of companies: Ambient: Consulting on Purpose.

Ambient is a professional services consultancy that works with businesses to integrate, articulate, and deliver purpose into their strategic initiatives.

“There are so many great things happening across the `ike family of companies,” explained Creighton Arita, CEO of `ike, as he introduced Ambient to the `ike family. “It’s amazing to witness all the positive initiatives taking place—this is truly an exceptional time, and the perfect time to introduce the transformational services of Ambient to Hawai`i and the world.”

“I’m thrilled to have an exceptional team of advisors that are centered around helping our clients deliver their strategic projects with passion, purpose, and heart.” - Matt Hawkins, Ambient President

Matt Hawkins, President of Ambient, has over fourteen years of advisory and management consulting experience, with deep expertise in people development, strategy design and articulation, process improvement, and customer analysis.

“Prior to coming together as Ambient, our team has delivered success for some of the largest and most recognizable business in the world—Coca-Cola, The Home Depot, Bank of America, AT&T, McKesson, HMSA, and many others,” Matt shared with the `ike family. “And we are thrilled to have the opportunity to impact organizations here in Hawai`i and beyond.”

KF1A2704Ben Ancheta, the Chief Development Officer at `ike, joins Ambient as their Principal, bringing years of experience in business development, relationship management, corporate sales, and talent and organizational development for high-growth companies.

“What is so exciting for me is that Ambient is creating a new kind of advisory firm,” Ben explains, “focused on purpose-driven strategy and execution. Our methodology is simple in concept: we help an organization rediscover its purpose for being, craft strategies to achieve that purpose, enable the organization to drive change, and activate its people to execute.”

KF1A0911Local girl and Harvard grad, Aisha Price, is the Senior Advisory Associate for the group.

“It’s so refreshing to work with a team of high-powered thinkers who value the approach of ‘listen, understand, and engage’ first, then ‘respond and react’ second,” Aisha explains. “And I’m thankful, as well, that Ambient provided a great opportunity for me to move back home to Hawai`i to work for a company with a heart for the community.”

Ambient joins `ike’s founding member, DataHouse, as well as TeamPraxis, `Ekahi Health System, Sagely, HQPO, and Pacific Hi-Tech, in the growing `ike family of companies.
