LANSING, Mich. — LAFCU has created the position of risk analyst to augment the credit union’s risk management.
Brian Tribell (pictured at bottom), with 12 years of experience in the financial sector, has been promoted to this new position. He will analyze data using fraud detection software to reduce LAFCU financial risk, support the annual, independent audit in compliance with the U.S. Bank Secrecy Act, and provide risk assessment overviews to management and the LAFCU board.
“The need for a position fully dedicated to risk analysis is the result of LAFCU’s successful lending, credit and membership programs,” said Jamie Antcliff, LAFCU audit coordinator. “As LAFCU financial assets increase, the position will align with a more robust approach to detect and minimize risk.
“Brian has demonstrated leadership, confidence and conviction in analysis and sound decision-making. All are important attributes of a risk analyst.”
Tribell has been with LAFCU for two years as a senior member service representative in the ITM (Interactive Teller Machine) department. He has provided member service virtually through audiovisual capabilities of ITMs located at all branch drive-thus, as well as via the Contact Center and the LAFCU website live chat, message center and loan queue.
“This is an incredible opportunity — both challenging and rewarding,” said Tribell. “I’ll be a guardian, of sorts, to help ensure the safety of LAFCU assets.”
Tribell’s experience also includes advancing to branch lead with a credit union, and serving as head teller for a bank and loan officer for a mortgage company.
The Okemos native attended Saginaw Valley State University, Saginaw.
