Michael A. Montalvo will serve as president of the eastern region and oversee operations for the more than 50 branch offices. Meanwhile, Chad Nichols was named president of NATC’s western region. He will oversee operations for 40 branch offices.

“With nearly three decades of experience in the title industry, Mike brings a wealth of operational expertise and a proven track record of delivering robust results,” said NATC President Dia Demmon. “His rise through the ranks at North American Title over the past few years is a testament to his considerable skill, as well as his visionary and approachable management style. He is well-suited to lead our extensive operations in the eastern region and to execute strategies that drive customer delight!”

Montalvo most recently served as central region president, managing NATC’s operations in Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota and Texas. Prior to that, he was Illinois division president. His career in the title industry began in 1991 as a scheduling clerk with the Professional National Title Network. During his 14 years there, he gained experience in title and escrow, eventually managing several different departments and finishing his time there in sales and marketing. He then worked for nearly six years as vice president, operations manager Chicago residential for a major title company before joining NATC.

Nichols brings two decades of experience in the industry, most recently serving as national sales manager for NATC. Launching his title industry career in 1999, he was promoted to a sales manager position for a national title company. He later served in various positions for two additional title companies, including county manager and senior vice president, before joining NATC in 2009.
