Bank of Hawaii Partners with 42 SimpliFi Athletes
for 2022-2023 season


October 5th, 2022

In September 2021, Bank of Hawaii announced its endorsement partnerships with 8 of Hawaii’s student-athletes. One year later, the number has grown fivefold, and today Bank of Hawaii announces its continued investment in athletes by entering into endorsement partnerships with 42 college student-athletes.

Returning SimpliFi Athletes are Samuta Avea, Chaz Galloway, Kamaka Hepa, Amber Igiede, Kelsie Imai, Amoro Lado, Daejah Phillips, Brooke Van Sickle and Guilherme Voss. (Lado and Voss were sponsored later in the 2021-2022 season after Bank of Hawaii’s initial announcement.)

Bank of Hawaii’s SimpliFi Athletes serve as ambassadors to help promote bank programs and initiatives and to spread goodwill throughout the community. While the terms of the agreements are confidential, Bank of Hawaii continues to offer added opportunities for its SimpliFi Athletes beyond a monetary sponsorship, which includes financial education and preparedness; professional/career development and training, such as internships and leadership programs; and community service and engagement experiences.

“Bank of Hawaii is honored to be supporting so many of our local student-athletes during their collegiate careers, and look forward to a partnership in which we offer them opportunities for years to come,” said Chairman, President and CEO of Bank of Hawaii Peter Ho.

“We are all very excited and grateful to partner with Bank of Hawaii and to be part of the SimpliFi Athlete team. The bank has a long history of supporting Hawaii Athletics and it’s an honor to be able to represent an organization that continues to do so much to give back to our community,” said Guilherme Voss.

About Bank of Hawaii’s Support to UH
Bank of Hawaii has been serving the community for nearly 125 years, and has a deep commitment to the University of Hawaii Athletics. In November 2020, Bank of Hawaii announced its support of the UH Athletics Department with a $5 million sponsorship over 10 years. The agreement included naming rights to the center, now called “SimpliFi Arena at Stan Sheriff Center.” To further support the college athletes and honor a beloved former Athletics Director, Bank of Hawaii created the Stan Sheriff Endowment Scholarship Fund, a $100,000 endowment scholarship for student-athletes.
