Bank of Hawaii Update

Aloha!!

I had a great time with Kevin Sakamoto of Bank of Hawaii walking down memory lane. 

About 25 years ago, I worked for the Bank of Hawaii as the Manager of the International Operations, Finance and Administration.  The Bank of Hawaii has changed quite a bit since then and has become more innovative, efficient and technology focused.  Kevin explained how the Bank has evolved and become the power house of banking it is today.
