For more than 40 years, YWCA Oahu has been recognizing extraordinary female leaders. Iris Matsumoto is one of four local women being honored for her leadership and community service at YWCA Oahu’s 2021 LeaderLuncheon.
Matsumoto serves as Executive Vice President of Human Resources for First Hawaiian Bank and is a member of the bank’s Senior Management Committee. In her current role, she is responsible for leading First Hawaiian Bank’s overall human resources strategy and preserving the bank’s unique culture of positive engagement with its more than 2,000 employees, overseeing talent acquisition, building leadership capability, organizational design and cultural development, employee engagement, succession management, compensation and benefits, HR operations and technology and employee relations.
Matsumoto joined First Hawaiian Bank in 1998 as Vice President of Compensation and Benefits where she managed the bank’s general and executive compensation and benefits strategies for employees located within the state of Hawaii, Continental U.S., Guam, and Saipan.
Under her leadership, First Hawaiian Bank was named one of Hawaii Business magazine’s Best Places To Work employer for ten consecutive years. This distinction is based on employee ratings of their workplace culture, including the pride they take in their jobs, the camaraderie they experience with co-workers and the level of trust they feel toward their leaders.
Throughout her 40-year career, Matsumoto has held senior leadership roles in the financial services, airline, retail, diversified agriculture industries for internationally based companies, working extensively across different cultures. She currently serves on the boards of First Hawaiian Foundation and Help, Understanding and Group Support (HUGS).
