Resource Title adds MacFarland to its commercial division

Aug 18, 2009

John MacFarland, an industry veteran of over 20 years, has joined Resource Title as senior vice president, national commercial division. MacFarland will spearhead the division’s growth into the commercial real estate-owned (REO) and default market segments, and take part in developing and servicing more traditional commercial and investment transactions as well. Resource Title is an independent, family-owned agency which has provided traditional title insurance services since 1984. The company has been servicing the commercial market nationwide for twenty-five years, recently opening a second office in Chicago to serve its commercial customers. The company also offers non-traditional services in the relocation, default and real estate-owned (REO) fields. MacFarland’s arrival will enhance an already considerable national commercial presence. “John is a well-regarded and respected industry leader,” said Andrew Rennell, executive vice president. “He comes to us with a well-rounded background, a wide-ranging network and, most importantly, an outlook and approach that perfectly fits our aggressive growth strategy.” MacFarland comes to Resource Title after seven years with a major national underwriter as vice president, business development, commercial and investment real estate. Before that, he served with two other national underwriters as a vice president, national sales and sales manager. In all, MacFarland has spent over 20 years in the industry. “Resource Title is growing while others struggle or tread water,” said MacFarland. “I’m looking forward to playing a key role growing a company which is already an industry leader in many ways.” MacFarland will be based in the Independence, Ohio office of Resource Title.
