He also led the SBA's Office of Capital Access, which oversaw a $76 billion dollar loan portfolio, the Office of Government Contracting/Business Development, the Office of Entrepreneurial Development and helped launch a highly successful Business Matchmaking program, a federal government and corporate procurement initiative. In 2008, Latin Business Magazine named Mr. Barrera as one of the top 100 influential Hispanics in Business. In 2007, Diversity Business.Com named him as one of America's Top Diversity Advocates; a list that included former President Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey.
