Gallardo first joined BBVA in September 2018 as a CIB Rotational Analyst.

Prior to joining BBVA, Estefanía worked as an internal audit and financial advisory consultant with an internal audit consulting firm.
According to Gallardo, she became interested in working with BBVA “because of its cultural diversity and international presence.” Gallardo graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelors of Business Administration in Finance. In her new role, she will report to BBVA USA Houston Commercial Banking - Emerging Companies Manager Ralph Miller.

We're so proud of her and the enthusiasm she brings to our team!”
