The American Land Title Association (ALTA)
has announced that Diane Tomb will take over as its new CEO on July 1. She replaces Michelle Korsmo, who stepped down last summer to become CEO of the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America.
Tomb is currently a commissioner on the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Commission on Political Reform and on the Board of Visitors at the Fund for American Studies. Tomb was previously executive director of the National Rental Home Council and president and CEO of the National Association of Women Business Owners. Earlier in her career, she served as Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs at the Department of Housing and Urban Development during the George W. Bush administration. In 2003, Tomb founded D.C.-based public affairs and business advisory firm Tomb & Associates LLC. She has also worked as a senior executive at the Fannie Mae Foundation and within the White House under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
"Diane was a unanimous selection by the board, and we expect her leadership and entrepreneurial spirit will immediately benefit our members, demonstrate our value to prospective members and continue ALTA’s tradition of strong advocacy on behalf of the land title insurance and settlement services industry," said Cynthia Durham Blair, ALTA’s President.
