Congratulations to Staff Sgt. Alfredo Marquez, 374th Comptroller Squadron financial analysis integration NCOIC, on being this week’s Airlifter of the Week!

Marquez leads a 7 member military, civilian, and local national team through the financial integration of the Financial Analysis Flight budget analysis and decision support for the 374 Airlift Wing and all tenant units assigned to the installation. He also prepares wing resource advisors for potential unannounced Department of Defense financial audits in conjunction with taskers assigned from HQ PACAF Financial Management.

While closing out FY19, SSgt Marquez was critical in the execution of an over 84.5 million dollar budget by ensuring funds were properly loaded, certified, and executable. During the fourth quarter of FY19 the wing received nearly 10 million unexpected additional funds, SSgt Marquez led his team in preparing the funds for the purchase of 47 unfunded requirements which the Wing was not anticipating to be able to purchase until FY20.

He exhibits servant leadership by coaching and mentoring Airmen through professional development and the next steps of their career as Financial Managers. SSgt Marquez takes a vested interest in his team’s upgrade training and their deliberate development, many times working well past others leaving to ensure that his Airmen have the resources and opportunities to grow.
