Higa, Tanimoto Re-Elected to Hawai‘i State FCU Board
Hawaiʻi State Federal Credit Union today announced that Marion Higa and Grant Tanimoto have been re-elected to its volunteer Board of Directors. Higa and Tanimoto will serve a new three-year term, effective March 2019.
Hawaiʻi State Federal Credit Union is the state’s largest credit union lender with more than 106,000 members on Oʻahu and Maui.
“As board members, Marion and Grant have contributed tremendously to Hawaiʻi State FCU’s recent accomplishments and notable growth in membership and financial performance,” said Andrew Rosen, president and CEO of Hawaiʻi State FCU. “I’m proud to congratulate them on their re-election and confident they will continue to support our mission and guide the organization by putting our members’ best interests first.”
Reappointed vice chair of the board, Marion Higa has served on the Hawaiʻi State FCU Board of Directors since 2016. A member of the credit union for more than 40 years, Higa served as state auditor for the State of Hawaiʻi for 21 years before retiring in 2012.
A Hawaiʻi State FCU board member since 2013, Grant Tanimoto has been reappointed treasurer of the board. Tanimoto is a retired private practice attorney and a former state employee. He held several positions within his 31 years in state government, including general counsel for the Campaign Spending Commission, acting director for the tax department and deputy attorney general. Tanimoto has been a member of Hawaiʻi State FCU for 39 years.
The seven-member Board of Directors serve on a voluntary basis and work to ensure the success and prosperity of the not-for-profit financial cooperative and its members.
In an effort to motivate and encourage members to vote, Hawaiʻi State FCU pledged to donate $5 for every online vote, up to $10,000, to a local nonprofit. This year’s recipient was the Center for Tomorrow’s Leaders, which has a mission to engage and empower Hawaiʻi’s future leaders.
