HawaiiUSA Federal Credit Union recognizes and congratulates all recipients of this year’s Top 20 list for the next 20, with a special mention for our very own President and CEO, Greg Young.
Since joining in 2019, Greg has provided his signature leadership and coaching grounded in the idea of leading by example and a “one team” philosophy. Honed over years of professional experience, as well as on the football field where he coaches the Iolani School Intermediate Football Team, Greg recognizes the honor and responsibility that comes with representing something more. big as it is, whether it’s Hawaii’s largest credit union or the name on the front of the jersey.
No time has been more tested than just months after he arrived with the coronavirus pandemic. Through his decision making, Greg helped HawaiiUSA through one of its most difficult times. HawaiiUSA ran in the red for the first few months of 2020, but still cleared $2 million by the end of the year. He was instrumental in an 8% year-to-date loan growth, reflected in HawaiiUSA reaching $1 billion in loans for the first time; only the second credit union to pass the milestone in the state.
During the pandemic, Greg has ensured the credit union delivers on its Life Matters commitment by helping members defer loans, disbursing money for county grants to members and non-members, and providing free office space for state contact tracers. HawaiiUSA was also able to keep its entire staff on payroll and provided online banking and mortgage services to its members. Through these efforts, HawaiiUSA was able to grow from $2.1 billion in assets in 2020 to $2.3 billion in assets, 14 full-service branches, and over 133,000 members it has today* .
With over 23 years in the industry filled with personal and organizational accomplishments, Greg will continue to lead the way for the next 20+ years. From everyone at HawaiiUSA, congratulations on a well-deserved honor!
