Honolulu based Aloha Pacific Federal Credit Union (Aloha Pacific) has expanded to Maui, beginning with a temporary branch that opened for business Feb. 6 in advance of a permanent branch in the Puunene Shopping Center later this year

The temporary branch is at 137 Kalepa Place in Kahului. The Maui team includes:

  • Lili Ramelb, branch manager
  • Kerilyn Oshiro, branch supervisor
  • Kelsey Chin, member relations officer
  • Roselyn Mondejar, member relations specialist

This is the second neighbor island endeavor for Aloha Pacific. It recently merged with Kekaha (Kauai) FCU, which is now known as Kekaha Credit Union, a Division of Aloha Pacific FCU. Aloha Pacific also has a branch in Henderson, Las Vegas and is the only Hawaii financial institution to reach out to the “ninth island.”

“We look forward to introducing our convenient, money-and time-saving products and services to the people of Maui,” said Vince Otsuka, president and CEO of Aloha Pacific. “In anticipation of our planned location at Puunene Shopping Center, we’ve decided to greet the surge of interest by opening this temporary location so that Maui residents can explore the services we have to offer.”

“For more than 80 years, Aloha Pacific has assisted in the financial goals and well-being of our members. We firmly believe in the credit union philosophy of people-helping-people.”

All employees of Maui County and members of the Hawaii Government Employees Association (HGEA) are automatically eligible to join Aloha Pacific. These groups are among the more than 2,300 Select Employee Groups (SEGs) whose workers are eligible for membership. Membership in the credit union requires just a small initial deposit into a new savings account.

The hours for the Aloha Pacific temporary branch on Kalepa Place are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays. Its phone number is 808.873.6101. This branch is also part of the CO-OP shared branching network. Members of other network participating credit unions can conduct transactions at the branch.
