Hawaii Pacific Federal Credit Union has promoted Mark Hirae to Assistant Vice President of Loans. Hirae joined Hawaii Pacific Federal in 2010 as Loan Manager.

“Mark has made a real impact,” said Hawaii Pacific Federal President Mark Yamane. “In just two years, he has increased our loan volume by 45 percent.”

“Mortgage refinances and home equity lines of credit have done particularly well in the current economic environment,” said Hirae, who notes that this is a particularly good time for consumers to look for loan products. “Economic growth will occur over the next three to five years, but at a slower pace than lenders have seen in the past. This is an ideal time for consumers to borrow as they will be able to find bargain pricing on loans.”

Hawaii Pacific Federal offers its members a variety of mortgage products, home equity lines of credit, auto loans, personal lines of credit and loans for bill consolidation and other personal needs.

Hirae has more than 30 years in the financial services industry. He worked at HawaiiUSA Federal Credit Union for 20 years where he held various positions including Vice President of Loan Administration, Vice President of Branch Administration, Branch Manager and Loan Review Officer. He also worked in management positions at other Hawaii-based financial institutions.
