West Maui Community Federal Credit Union joins Maui County FCU
LAHAINA – Maui County Federal Credit Union (MCFCU) welcomed West Maui Community Federal Credit Union (WMCFCU) to its family on Sept. 1. Merging members, assets and services, this step fulfills MCFCU’s continued mission to help Maui County families achieve and sustain stable financial futures – a goal since its inception in 1937.
Made stronger together, the credit union’s West and Central Maui communities will have access to increased service and financial opportunities across three MCFCU branch locations: Kahului, Wailuku and Lahaina.
It is MCFCU’s goal to ensure a smooth transition for all members and staff, which includes transforming the WMCFCU branch into MCFCU’s Lahaina Branch. WMCFCU CEO and Manager Michele Kawahara will take on the new role of chief strategy officer for MCFCU and serve as a part of senior management.
Emi Sodetani-Cabanilla will be the new Lahaina Branch manager. Remy Bilog and Kathy Rocetes will also continue to serve West Maui through the Lahaina Branch.
“We are excited to welcome the West Maui Community FCU members to Maui County FCU,” said Gary Fukuroku, president and CEO of MCFCU.
“We hope to provide the same excellent service to these members and the community in West Maui. The products and services that MCFCU has will be of benefit to the Lahaina community. Our West Maui presence helps fulfill our mission statement of ‘Caring For Our Members’ Needs.’ “
Since their beginnings, Maui County FCU, established in 1937, and West Maui Community FCU, established in 1938, have operated with the ‘ohana principle and credit union philosophy of “People Helping People.”
