Myrna joined Harper McNeil in January of 2001, bringing over 30 years of banking and systems experience to our company. She specializes in loan applications in a variety of technology packages.
Before working as a consultant, Myrna worked as an officer with MainStreet Financial Corporation, a multi-state, regional banking concern based in Martinsville, Virginia. Myrna planned, scheduled, and coordinated loan application conversions for the new acquisitions to the MainStreet company during the 1990s, prior to its acquisition by Branch Banking & Trust Company. During this time, she also managed the Loan Servicing (Operations) area for the company with responsibility for new loan input, investor accounting, escrow administration, quality control, and customer service, and she also served as systems administrator for the bank’s loan platform system. Myrna worked as an independent consultant just prior to joining Harper McNeil and focused on the development of training materials and writing procedures for banks in Virginia and North Carolina.
Myrna brings with her a great deal of management experience in loan administration and operations. Since joining the company, she has worked with banks up and down the eastern coast and as far west as Texas to ensure the accurate conversion of core system data. In addition to her work with core conversions, she has completed reviews of lending operations for banks and savings banks as well as managed the search and conversion process for new bank lending platforms.
Myrna attended Patrick Henry Community College and is a graduate of The School of Mortgage Banking at Northwestern University in Evanston Illinois. Her project management abilities and detail-oriented knowledge mesh well with the overall goals of Harper McNeil, and she is a great asset to our company.
Along with her husband, Myrna enjoys cruising in their restored 1937 Chevrolet Business Coupe and spending time with their family. The Fergusons are members of Jones Chapel Church of the Brethren, where she has chaired various commissions, served as church board chair and church treasurer, and enjoys singing in the church choir. Myrna has served on the board of the Virginia District COB, District Executive Committee, and as secretary of the Commission of Stewards and on other committees for the district.
While Myrna retired from full time employment in 2016, she continues to work on special projects for the company.
