Samantha Meyer has dedicated 16 years to First Community Mortgage’s employees, customers and community, leading to her selection as the first female on the board of directors for First Community Mortgage in 2019.
Meyer is an expert in her field and has a vast knowledge of every facet of mortgage lending. She is a reliable source of answers to complicated questions and stays up-to-date on the latest mortgage industry trends and changes, including ever-changing regulatory requirements. Likewise, she fosters the same always-learning, always-growing approach among her team members, and actively supports them, going far beyond simply modeling these great habits. Her election to the First Community Mortgage board of directors was well-deserved, as Meyer has managed nearly every operational department in the company. As a very active member of the community, she also serves as vice president of FCM Cares (an employee-driven, community-focused Foundation) and since the inception of the non-profit in 2016, participates monthly in The Mortgage Collaborative women’s networking group.
Meyer manages a team of 20 people who would agree she is the glue of her department. Over the last year, production nearly doubled for First Community Mortgage, yet business was “as usual” because Meyer provided extra training sessions as necessary, was always available to assist with any unusual circumstance and stayed informed on industry and regulatory changes. In March of 2021, First Community Mortgage acquired a Mortgage Boutique, and Meyer headed up the acquisition herself from a compliance and licensing standpoint to ensure everyone was covered for Risk.
