Pacific Island Financial: Our Story

With headquarters in Hawaii, our mission is to provide customers with the financial resources they need to grow great companies. Pacific Island Financial is owned by BSB Leasing, Inc. BSB Leasing has been helping commercial customers acquire equipment nationwide since 1981.

Pacific Island Financial was started in 2014 with the idea that Hawaii-based businesses would prefer to work with other local companies. Don Myerson, president of BSB Leasing, Inc., a national, commercial equipment finance company with headquarters in Denver, Colorado, moved to Kauai with his family in 2003. After spending over a decade in the Islands, Don observed that there was a unique atmosphere to the Hawaii market that was overlooked by the few mainland based companies that had been servicing the state. Thus, most Hawaii-based companies in need of financing either had to depend on their local bank, or had to deal with one of the few mainland-based financing companies – of which, none understood the local market or environment. Because of this, it just made sense to create an independent, Hawaii-based financing company with the primary goal of servicing the needs of other Hawaii-based companies. Enter Pacific Island Financial. A company built on over 35 years of industry experience, an understanding and appreciation of the local environment, and a desire to finance growth in local companies. We are Hawaii’s own!
