HONOLULU, Mar. 10, 2017 – Dani Aiu, executive vice president and director of consumer banking at American Savings Bank (ASB) was named to Pacific Business News’ 19th Annual Women Who Mean Business Industry Leaders list.

Aiu is joined by a diverse group of female honorees recognized for demonstrating exceptional leadership and business acumen, as well as having a strong commitment to making Hawaii a better place. This year’s honorees in the Industry Leader and Women to Watch categories were chosen from more than 150 nominations.

“Dani’s exceptional talents as a leader are matched by her knowledge of retail banking and an unwavering dedication to serving our community,” said Beth Whitehead, executive vice president and chief administrative officer of ASB. “Our ASB team congratulates her on this special honor, which couldn’t be more well-deserved.”

Aiu started her career in banking as a teller in 1995. Over the years, she quickly progressed through various leadership roles, and today she is responsible for leading ASB's statewide branch network of 500 teammates working in 51 branches on five islands. Her leadership and sales skills have enabled her to coach her teams to seamlessly connect ASB's products, including home loans, business loans, investments and insurance, with customers to help them realize their dreams.

Aiu currently serves on the board of directors for the Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii, an organization that provides a safe haven where youth can grow, play and learn. From 2009 to 2012, Aiu served as a member of the board of directors of the Key Project on their finance committee, where she helped to scale back expenses and maximize revenue.
