Farm Credit Welcomes McPherson as Compliance Specialist

Farm Credit of the Virginias (FCV), a lending cooperative that serves Virginia, West Virginia and western Maryland, announced that Kendra McPherson joined the Association as a compliance specialist. She will be based in the Wytheville branch, but she will serve FCV’s entire three-state territory.

McPherson is originally from Elizabethton, Tenn., but she currently resides in Fort Chiswell, Va. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from East Tennessee State University and since then, she has continued her education by obtaining multiple securities licensures in addition to a financial planning certificate. She has also completed a ministerial internship program, as well as the Wythe-Bland Chamber of Commerce Leadership Development Program.

McPherson brings a diverse background in financial services, administration and most recently, loan processing at a regional bank, to her new role at FCV. McPherson shared, “I am excited to bring a strong work ethic, knowledge of loan procedures and processing, and a willingness to learn to my new position.” 

Director of Compliance and Loan Operations, Dana Close, said, “We are excited to welcome Kendra to the compliance team at FCV. Her financial background paired with her regulatory experience will be an asset within her new role as we continue to serve our customers and mission.” 

Outside of work, McPherson and her husband stay busy with their two sons’ sporting activities, especially basketball. She and her family are very involved in their church, where her husband is the music pastor and she plays on the praise team. They had a small homestead with cows, chickens and goats at their previous home in Franklin County, Va., which they hope to replicate at their new home in Fort Chiswell.
