In her role as Alliant Credit Union’s Supervisor, Portfolio Management, Gabriella Balderrama has a proactive approach to her daily responsibilities. The result is a loan portfolio that exceeds performance expectations, while duly meeting the watchful eyes of internal examiners and auditors.

She leads a successful team at Alliant, achieving outstanding performance, while protecting the integrity of the investments for members. Additionally, Balderrama has taken independent action in seeking and securing efficiencies throughout Alliant’s commercial real estate loan management operations, including numerous undertakings to improve tracking and monitoring systems that efficiently report on and manage a large portfolio of real estate loans.
