UPDATE: CEO arrested on prostitution charge steps down

KAHALA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The head of one of Hawaii's biggest human resources companies has stepped down just days after being arrested on a prostitution charge.

Matthew Delaney, 43, was picked up early Wednesday morning by Honolulu Police Vice officers at the Kahala Resort. Sources said it happened during an undercover sting.

A press release for The Hawaii Group says Delaney stepped down from the position for personal reasons. Scott Meichtry has been named as his replacement.

Delaney was the Chief Executive Officer of the company that provides staffing, accounting and marketing services to businesses.

He is also a former trustee of the Queen's Health Systems and once served on the board for Special Olympics Hawaii.

Delaney posted a $500 bail and was released.
