WFG Forms Rocky Mountain Region
June 14, 2022
WFG National Title Insurance Co. expanded its agency footprint to include four additional western states -- Colorado, Utah, Montana and Wyoming with the formation of the company’s new Rocky Mountain Region.
Brian Phillips, vice president and Rocky Mountain area manager, will head operations for the new region. He will share responsibility for growing the new region’s title agent base with Agency Sales Representative Kristen Jorgensen. Randy Williams will serve as underwriting counsel for the new region.
“We are thrilled to have Brian and Kristen heading our expansion into the Rocky Mountain Region,” said Suzanne Tinsley, senior vice president of WFG’s Southwest Region and Western Regional Manager. “Brian has a long and established history of supporting agents in this region, and he knows what they need most to succeed in today’s market. His wealth of title experience, industry knowledge, and relationships are exactly what we need to build this region into what WFG agents have come to expect and value.
“Kristen is exceptional as well, consistently going above and beyond for her agents. In today’s volatile market, they know she is there advocating for them, serving as a valuable resource, making her almost a part of her customer’s team,” Tinsley concluded.
A 12-year veteran of the title industry, Phillips began his career litigating real estate and title insurance matters, and later moved on to serve as underwriting counsel before transitioning into the sales and agent support side of the business. Phillips said he learned his most valuable lessons from owning a title company and experiencing firsthand the challenges and opportunities that independent title agents face on a daily basis.
“I believe every problem has a solution and I sincerely appreciate and enjoy working for a company like WFG that shares my solutions-oriented philosophy and prioritizes providing programs and services that empower independent agents to achieve maximum success. I am very enthusiastic to bring all of this to WFG’s new Rocky Mountain region,” Phillips said.
With more than a decade of experience in virtually every facet of the title industry, Jorgensen leverages her extensive knowledge to support independent title agents, serving as a hands-on extension of their own teams and helping them grow and succeed in their daily operations.
“I am thrilled to join WFG and to offer agents the many tools available through the company’s Blocks program, as these incredible resources are truly unmatched by any other underwriter in the industry,” Jorgensen said.
