Harry Gardner will serve on the board of directors for the Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO), an industry trade group said.

MISMO is part of the Mortgage Bankers Association.

Currently, Gardner is president of SigniaDocs and has been the chair of MISMO’s Residential Standards Governance Committee for the past four years.

“Harry has been an invaluable leader for MISMO for over a decade.  This move allows the Board to tap Harry’s deep knowledge, experience, and institutional memory regarding standards development.  MISMO needs strong leadership and historical perspective to guide us into the future,” said MISMO President, Michael Fratantoni.
