Hawaii State Federal Credit Union has found a new leader.
Andrew Rosen, formerly of the San Francisco-based Bank of the West, has been named president/CEO of the Honolulu-based, $1.2 billion credit union.
Rosen has more than 22 years of experience in the financial services industry, and held key leadership positions at several large financial institutions on Hawaii and the mainland, including with Washington Mutual, Regions Financial Corp. and Bank of Hawaii.
Hawaii State FCU said Rosen most recently helped Bank of the West take the lead in new deposit household growth and checking account acquisition and launched the bank’s new “Go West” brand.
The credit union has been looking for a new permanent CEO since Deborah Kim resigned in November 2011 after 20 years on the job.
Senior Vice President Rachael Sasaki has served as acting president since Kim’s departure.
