This spring, the Texas Mortgage Bankers Association announced the appointment of W. Scott Norman as the new Chief Executive Officer of the 107-year-old organization effective June 1. TMBA President Matt Kiker said, “Scott Norman brings industry knowledge and experience along with a passion for our association and its members to his new role as CEO.”

A 30-year mortgage banker, Norman began his industry career as a loan officer with Temple-Inland Mortgage Corporation, later becoming President of the Austin Mortgage Bankers Association. In 1999, he captained the original campaign to amend the Texas Constitution to authorize reverse mortgages in the state. More recently, he was awarded the Larry E. Temple award, the highest honor the Texas MBA can bestow to one of its members.

As Norman steps into his new role, former Executive Vice President Lisa Vercher has retired after 25 years with the TMBA. In her role, Lisa managed the purpose of the organization, including mortgage industry education, state and federal legislative initiatives, and member interaction. Her efforts contributed to the mutual interests of members to preserve, enhance, and further mortgage banking and real state finance in the state.

TMBA General Counsel John Fleming, who has served the organization with distinction since 2010, is also retiring effective September 1.  We thank Lisa and John for their commitment to bettering our industry, protecting and promoting our interests, and contributing to the education of member companies and professionals statewide.
