Vice President, HOA Banking
Lisa Elkan began her career in banking as a teller during the summers while attending Iowa State University. After graduating from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Finance, Lisa moved to South Florida and worked as an auditor for a commercial bank. From auditing the different areas of the bank, she gained knowledge in all areas of banking, including investments and mortgages. Her interest in those two areas led her to working as a mortgage-backed securities trader for a capital markets firm and branch manager of a national appraisal management company.
Her most recent experience was in financial sales management with one of her focuses on the deposit accounts and capital improvement loans for the community management industry. Lisa’s career in banking has allowed her to better understand the unique needs of the community management industry to save them time and money. She believes education is important to the community managers and board members; therefore, she has facilitated seminars to allow licensed community managers to earn continuing education credits.
Lisa, who resides in Boca Raton, Florida, joined Alliance Association Bank in 2013 as vice president and covers the South Florida region.
