Bank of Hawaii announces Senior Vice President Sharlene R. Ginoza-Lee will be promoted to Chief People Officer, effective May 4. She will lead and manage all areas of the bank’s People Services division, including compensation and benefits, employee development programs, talent acquisition and management, operations and regulatory compliance.

Ginoza-Lee joined Bank of Hawaii’s Human Resources department in 1994. Since then, she has acquired experience from a variety of business specialties within the division, and progressed into a number of leadership positions, including manager of the Human Resources Service Center and manager of the Talent Acquisition department.

Ginoza-Lee holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. She is a graduate of the Pacific Coast Banking School.

Ginoza-Lee will succeed Edward Hudson, who joined Bank of Hawaii in 2017 and most recently served as Chief People Officer. Prior to the bank, Hudson worked in human resources and organizational development for several leading technology companies in Silicon Valley for more than 20 years. He holds a master’s in business administration in human resource management from the University of Southern California. Hudson will pursue his own human resources consulting business for local HR professionals and organizations.

Chief Audit Executive Lacey Nakaguma will expand her role to oversee a new division at Bank of Hawaii known as Audit Services, to include Internal Audit and Credit Review. She joined Bank of Hawaii in March 2019 as vice president and senior audit manager, and was promoted to senior vice president and chief audit executive in 2020. Nakaguma continues to be responsible for the oversight and execution of internal audit planning, fieldwork, and reporting. Effective May 1, in addition to Internal Audit, she will oversee the bank’s Credit Review department. Together, this team will provide an enterprise-wide view of risks and emerging risks, implement effective controls, and monitor and comply with laws and regulations.

Nakaguma previously worked in auditing and risk positions at American Savings Bank, as well as Union Bank, Amazon and Deloitte, all in Washington State. An alumna of the University of Southern California, she earned her degree in accounting information systems. She serves on the board of the Hawaii Nature Center and is a member of the Institute of Internal Auditors.

Nakaguma’s appointment is in anticipation of the retirement of Executive Director of Credit Review Wayne Anderson, effective April 30. Originally from the San Francisco/Bay Area, Anderson plans to return to California to spend retirement with his family.

Anderson first worked for Bank of Hawaii from 2008 to 2009 as senior vice president and credit review manager. Prior to rejoining the bank in 2017, he worked at MUFG Union Bank in San Francisco from 2009 to 2016 as a managing director of its Credit Review department. Anderson has held management positions at several financial institutions spanning more than 20 years, including Bank of America, Greater Bay Bancorp, Union Bank of California, and the Federal Reserve Bank, all in California.
