Alan H. Arizumi, executive vice president of wealth management with First Hawaiian Bank, and Catherine Ngo, executive vice president and chief administration officer for Central Pacific Bank, have joined The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii’s Board of Trustees.

“The Conservancy is fortunate to have the expertise and enthusiasm of these two rising business leaders,” said Kenton Eldridge, chair of the Hawaiʻi board. “Both are known in Honolulu as being real doers.”

Added Suzanne Case, the Conservancy’s Hawaii executive director: “We look forward to engaging Alan and Catherine in the business of conservation. They both value the environment and understand the contribution it makes to our economy and quality of life in Hawai‘i.”

Arizumi has 30 years of banking experience and currently oversees First Hawaiian Bank’s wealth management group division after managing its business, dealer and card services group. Previously, he served as FHB’s executive vice president and chief risk officer, and as executive vice president and manager of the corporate banking and trade finance divisions.

A graduate of the University of Hawaiʻi and the Pacific Coast Banking School in Washington, Arizumi serves on the boards of Kuakini Medical Center, Hawaiʻi Community Reinvestment Corporation, Enterprise Honolulu, First Hawaiian Bank Foundation, McKinley High School Foundation and KCAA Preschools of Hawaii.

Ngo has over 17 years of executive experience in the banking and private equity industries. As Central Pacific Bank’s executive vice president and chief administration officer, she oversees legal and compliance, human resources, marketing and service quality. Before coming to CPB, she served as a general partner of Startup Capital Ventures, as General Counsel of Silicon Valley Bank, and as chief operating officer of Silicon Valley Bank's investment subsidiary, Alliant Partners.

A graduate of the University of Virginia and University of Virginia School of Law, Ngo is an advisory board member for Zero2IPO Group, a private equity industry service provider in China, and sits on the boards of Enterprise Honolulu and the University of Hawaiʻi Foundation.
