BOH partners with 42 SimpliFi Athletes for 2022-2023 season
HONOLULU, Hawaii—In September 2021, Bank of Hawai‘i announced its endorsement partnerships with eight of Hawai‘i’s student-athletes. One year later, the number has grown fivefold, and Bank of Hawai‘i recently announced 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 Hawai‘i’s initial announcement.)
Bank of Hawai‘i’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 Hawai‘i 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 Hawai‘i 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 Hawai‘i Peter Ho.
“We are all very excited and grateful to partner with Bank of Hawai‘i and to be part of the SimpliFi Athlete team. The bank has a long history of supporting Hawai‘i 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 Voss. (PR)
