Marilyn BarnewallWho’s Who in America, Who’s Who of American Women, Who’s Who in Finance and Business, and Who’s Who in the World

Marilyn MacGruder Barnewall was president of The MacGruder Agency, Inc., a bank financial consulting and profit analysis firm, from 1979 through 1993. She is recognized as the “guru” of North American Private Banking (so-called by Town and Country and Trust and Estates magazines). In the July 9, 1989 issue of Forbes, Barnewall was hailed as “Dean of American Private Banking.” She is known for creating a credit-driven wealth-creation form of banking that helps grow independent businesses to create jobs.

Barnewall’s company (she is retired) specialized in non-traditional market segmentation strategies designed to identify affluent and middle market customer niches. She started the first wealth creation private bank in America at Denver’s largest bank. She devised products and strategies to assist banks in marketing effectively to affluent and about- to-be-affluent clients that emerged into a capital source for new start-up businesses and new job growth. Strategies included loan quality, credit philosophies, loan policies, procedures, risk analysis and profitability analysis. For five years, Barnewall researched private banking profitability and published a survey each year. As a result of her work, she coined terms like “upscale,” “active investor,” “passive investor,” inter alia. Her research became known as the Active/Passive Energy Syndrome (APES) and included interviews with 5,000 of America’s self-made affluents.
