HAGÅTŃA, Guam—The Bank of Guam board, management and staff announced Friday the retirement of Jacqueline “Jackie” A. Marati, who is the bank’s senior vice president, chief corporate social responsibility officer, after nearly 23 years of service.

Marati first joined the Bank’s Corporate Banking Group in 1999. Since then, she has held positions of special assistant to the president for Tony Leon Guerrero before heading the bank’s marketing, human resources, communications, and public relations areas. For the last few years, Marati has overseen the bank’s Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility efforts. Fueled by her passion to give back to the island communities served by the bank, she has led several international award-winning Bank of Guam projects: the bank’s Year in Review, Annual Calendar, and Founder’s Day of Giving.


Marati, an island daughter, is a graduate of the Academy of Our Lady of Guam (salutatorian) and received her bachelor’s degree from Vassar College. Other educational accolades include numerous executive leadership programs at Dartmouth, Stanford, Wharton and Northwestern universities, and the Pacific Coast Banking School. Marati served as the president of the Guam Bankers Association and is a founding board member of the Guam Women’s Chamber of Commerce. Marati also served as the chief administrative officer with the Guam International Airport Authority. She remains the only Accredited Airport Executive by the American Association of Airport Executives.

In addition to her role with the bank and in line with her passion to serve, Marati currently sits on the boards of Guam Cancer Care, USO Advisory, UOG Center for Island Sustainability (chairman), The Employers Council, and has previously served on the boards of The Make a Wish Foundation, Tourism Education Council, Pacific Islanders in Communications, St. Anthony and Academy of Our Lady. She is the recipient of the Holy Cross Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice by Pope Benedict, Seven Seals Award by the ESGR and was inducted as a laureate to the Academy of Our Lady of Guam Hall of Fame. She also was awarded Public Citizen of the Year by the National Association of Social Workers (Guam).

“Over her career with Bank of Guam, Jackie has made a genuine impact on how the bank has grown and developed our community outreach, sustainability and financial empowerment efforts. We are grateful for the work she has done, but most importantly the relationships she has established and nurtured within the organization and in the community. We know Jackie’s commitment to excellence in social responsibility and sustainability is steadfast and that her journey is far from over. The board of directors, management, staff and we, her Bank of Guam familia, wish her the very best in her next chapters,” said Joaquin P. LG. Cook, president and chief executive officer of the bank.
