Core Title Services Adds Underwriting Counsel

March 22, 2022

New York-based Core Title Services recently added title industry veteran Mike Slive to its leadership team as senior vice president and underwriting counsel.

Slive is the New York boutique firm’s sixth staff attorney.

“Mike’s hire is a big benefit to our clients—and to us,” said Andrew Zankel, president of Core Title Services. “He’s another experienced attorney who can help them with the kind of transaction they have, no matter how complicated it gets,” Zankel said. “He’s an out-of-the box thinker who is an experienced problem solver when it comes to all things title.”

Slive’s career spans more than 25 years in New York working in direct operations for the “Big Four” underwriting companies.

“I've worked on everything from the smallest of residential transactions to multi-site, billion-dollar deals,” Slive said. “I've seen just about everything at this point.”

Slive is energized by the opportunity to work on the agency side with such a professional and dedicated group. His knowledge will be especially beneficial to the company’s growing book of commercial business.

“Every deal is different in our business,” Zankel said “Mike recognizes those differences, takes it all in and really comes up with the right answer. He adds so much to what Core Title Services is already doing and makes us stronger. Mike is going to be a big cog in what we’re doing going forward.”
