HONOLULU, June 13, 2017 – Emi Au, first vice president and director of financial planning and analysis at American Savings Bank (ASB), was named to Pacific Business News’ 2017 40 Under 40 list.

The award recognizes the state’s cream of the crop for elevating their organizations, their industries and their communities. This year’s list was selected from a competitive group of more than 160 nominations.

As a leader at ASB, Au oversees the bank’s annual operating budget, conducts quarterly forecasting and manages risk reports. She is also responsible for a team of financial officers who together help to drive the bank’s growth and success. 

“Our ASB team congratulates Emi on this much deserved honor,” said Beth Whitehead, executive vice president and chief administrative officer. “We are proud to call Emi our colleague, and are grateful for the many contributions she provides each and every day as a leader in our bank and our community.”

Au’s leadership skills extend to the community as well – she was part of the inaugural cohort of the Patsy T. Mink Leadership Alliance, is a board member and events coordinator of Junior Achievement Hawaii, and is a board member of the YWCA of Oahu. She also volunteers at the Hawaiian Humane Society, helping to educate youth about animal care and fostering rescue kittens.
