Westcor Land Title Insurance Company (Westcor), announced Richard Bramhall has joined the senior management team as senior underwriter and director of national services, including the newly formed Lender Service Group.

A veteran of the multi-state title industry, Bramhall was the original title agency counsel for Chesapeake Appraisal & Settlement Services, one of the first lender-owned vendor management companies, and has served as a member of the Board of the Real Estate Services Providers Council (RESPRO), the Title and Appraisal Vendor Management Association (TAVMA), and is the Immediate past president of the Property Records Industry Association (PRIA).

Bramhall currently is a member of ALTA's Real Property Records Committee.

He is also a contributing editor for Ernst Publishing, publisher of the Real Estate Recording Guide. Bramhall is a graduate of Princeton University and Emory University School of Law.

“We are excited that Richard will bring experience and stability to the National Services Group,” said Mary O’Donnell, president and CEO. “Richard’s experience in the national lender market is unparalleled.”
