WFG Names President of New National Builder Services Division

September 20, 2022

WFG National Title Insurance Co. recently named Shaun Gonzales as president of its newly formed National Builder Services division, which will provide escrow, title, and underwriting services to both regional and national homebuilders in all 50 states.

"The builder channel is vital to the residential real estate market, and we expect this market to pick up significantly within the next year and a half and to remain strong for years to come," said Patrick Stone, executive chair and founder of WFG. "With the launch of our new division, we intend to support builders as we do in our other channels: by delivering best-in-class solutions and backing them with high-touch, personalized service. We're all about making builders more efficient, which benefits all of us."

As president for WFG's National Builder Services division, Gonzales will focus on developing builder business within the company's direct operations and building a dedicated national operation to support major national homebuilders.

Over the last 20 years, Gonzales has led organizations during new home surges and managed them during significant market downturns. Early in his career, he held positions as a top escrow officer/manager and a national process improvement director. Since 2012, he has served as national vice president for a national title underwriter dedicated to the homebuilder space.

"We are thrilled to have Shaun leading the charge for our new National Builder Services division," said WFG President and CEO Steve Ozonian. "This is an important business channel for WFG and our industry, and Shaun knows it well. He understands builders and their unique business needs and is passionate about helping them be more successful."
