Major Account Manager

NE Region-Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield


David C. Ferguson

The lessons Dave Ferguson learned on a Bradley County tomato farm served him well throughout his career as an attorney and insurance executive.

"All kids should learn to work at an early age," he says "I grew up not knowing anything different than to work hard."

At 37, Ferguson has a law degree and supervises third-party administrative programs for Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Jonesboro. He oversees the company's management of self-insurance health plans for companies throughout northeast Arkansas.

A former Blue Cross sales manager for northwest Arkansas in Fayetteville, Ferguson also managed excess loss and product development at the company's headquarters in Little Rock.

Ferguson earned his law degree while working in the insurance industry and serves on the Insurance and Health Law Committees of the Arkansas Bar Association. He and his wife, Belinda, coach all sports for the Jonesboro YMCA.

Ferguson credits support from his co-workers and the ability to work with every strata of his customers - from company presidents to factory workers.

"I think over the course of a career in health care, I've been able to get along with all sorts of individuals," he says.
