May 13, 2011

WFG National Title Insurance Company has announced the appointment of A. Roger Blauvelt as vice president, underwriting counsel and Lisa Kent as title officer in its Florida agency group. The Williston Financial Group family of title insurers is currently licensed and operating in 38 jurisdictions nationwide. The company is a full-service provider of title insurance and real estate settlement services for lender, commercial and residential transactions nationwide. Blauvelt’s role with WFG National Title will be to serve as state counsel for Florida, as well as helping to develop and support agency relationships in several eastern states. He will also contribute to the WFG National Title national underwriting team. Blauvelt comes to the firm with over 30 years of experience in the title and mortgage industry, having most recently served as counsel—special issues for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). Before that, he served 24 years with one of the nation’s largest title underwriters, departing after seven years in the role of senior vice president, Northeast and Southeast Regional Counsel. He has also represented mortgage lenders and title insurance companies in private practice. He was the New Jersey Land Title Association’s president in 1987 and 1988. Blauvelt received his juris doctorate from Fordham Law School, and his Bachelor’s Degree from Boston College. “Roger is one of the most highly regarded title insurance attorneys in the industry,” said Joseph Drum Esq., EVP of WFG National Title Insurance Company. “His experience, knowledge and skill set make him yet another excellent resource in WFG’s continuing efforts to support and collaborate with their independent agency partners.” Kent joins WFG National Title after over 20 years in the settlement services industry, most recently serving 16 years with one of the industry’s largest title insurers as a senior title examiner. During that time, she was heavily involved with underwriting support for a wide range of residential, commercial and mixed-use transactions. She will provide high-level support for WFG National Title agents on a variety of transactional issues, including curing title defects. “Lisa is well-known among Florida agents,” said Gene Rebadow, SVP, Florida Agency Manager. “Her appointment represents our commitment to providing deep resources for our agents, who remain our number one focus.”
