Chris Dods rising at First Hawaiian Bank

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:38 p.m. HST, Jan 02, 2014

First Hawaiian Bank has a new marketing communications division manager. Chris Dods, a senior vice president at the bank, was named to the position today.

Dods has been with First Hawaiian since 2007. He started at the bank as an assistant vice president in business development, new markets and technology. In 2009, he was promoted to vice president of the card services division and then to senior vice president and card services division manager in 2011.

In his most recent position, Dods was responsible for directing the marketing and operations of the bank's credit and debit card programs.

Dods replaced Brandt Farias, who retired from the position Nov. 1 after 28 years at the bank.

Dods is the son of former First Hawaiian CEO Walter Dods Jr., who joined the bank in 1968 in a marketing position and became president in 1984. Walter Dods retired as CEO in 2004.

Wow, this guy must be a genius. I don't think I've ever heard of someone going from AVP to VP in two years then VP to SVP in another two.

Nepotism obviously, Daddy is still on the BOD and did a solid favor for FHB's parent company, BNP Paribas with the rail project by directing a billion dollar rail contract to a bankrupt company (Ansaldo) that owes BNP big money. They are now simply returning the favor. Walter Dods has sold out Hawaii for BNP/FHB. Crooked bankers in bed with crooked politicians, a very familiar tale indeed.

Nepotism at its finest time. Didnt Peter Ho from Bank of Hawaii move up fast too because of his relation to someone? I feel so sorry for other AVPs or VPs who worked so hard, dedicated their life to their bank only to see this. What a shame.
