Get to know Steven Sylvester

Father. Farmer. Banker.


“Community is at the heart of everything we do. Our customers are our neighbors, and we want our teams to treat our customers how we want our family members to be treated.”

– Steven Sylvester
SVP, Branch Banking

Proud to be a part of this community.

Born and raised on a farm outside Hilo, Steven has always had deep roots in the community. Becoming a banker has allowed him the chance to make an even greater difference in his community—from opening Hilo’s new branch of tomorrow to supporting the families and business owners he sees every day.

Welcome to Hilo Branch

Steven was part of the team that welcomed us into the new Hilo Branch, which opened in September 2022. From the ground up, Steven was instrumental in opening this new Branch of Tomorrow. Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the branch.
