“This is a pivotal time for Hawaii State FCU as we work towards the completion of our new headquarters, continue to grow with the opening of new in-store branches at Safeway stores on Oahu and Maui, and so much more.

I am confident they will continue to put our members’ best interests first.”

Katahira received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Civil Engineering, and his master’s in business administration from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He has also served as a board member for the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii and the American Council of Engineering Companies of Hawaii.

Marion Higa has served on the Hawaii 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 Hawaii for 21 years before retiring in 2012.

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.
