HONOLULU, HAWAIIABA Banking Journal, a leading national trade publication, named Bank of Hawaii the top performing bank in the nation for 2013 among the largest public banks and thrifts. Bank of Hawaii rose in ranking from its #2 position the prior year.

The rankings were published in the magazine’s April 2014 edition and online with a special feature article, “How Bank of Hawaii hit the top.

Peter Ho, Bank of Hawaii chairman, president and CEO, said, “This is wonderful recognition for our employees and testament to the hard work they do every day in helping our customers meet their financial needs. It’s also a reflection of our great customers and the community in which we operate. We take pride in our performance and strive to do our best for the people who count on us.”
