American Land Title Association Names Anastasi as President

November 2, 2010

The American Land Title Association (ALTA) announced that veteran land title insurance industry professional Anne L. Anastasi has been named president for the 2010-2011 year.

Anastasi is president of Hatboro, Pa.-based Genesis Abstract, LLC. Prior to opening her own company in 1994, she served as vice president of a regional land title insurance underwriter. In 1999, Anastasi served as the first female president in the 80-year history of the Pennsylvania Land Title Association.

"I am honored to serve ALTA as its president, especially at this time,” Anastasi said. "The importance of title insurance in assuring property rights has been amplified with the recent foreclosure issues stemming from lending processing errors. This has afforded us a great teaching opportunity to explain the repairing and closing process so that people purchasing a home or those refinancing their mortgages will understand that title insurance is not just a product but a valuable process that protects their investment.”

Anastasi is a renowned national speaker, covering topics such as title insurance, customer service, sales and motivation. She has been the keynote speaker at 46 title industry state conventions and has addressed audiences for ALTA, Real Estate Services Providers Council (RESPRO), bar associations and mortgage bankers.

“Anne is as passionate and articulate a spokesperson for the title industry as you could ever hope to find, but she also has other qualities such as the ability to listen and great judgment, that will distinguish her leadership,” said Kurt Pfotenhauer, chief executive officer of ALTA. “Given the challenges facing the title industry, we are blessed to have a leader of such quality."

Anastasi graduated with honors from Colgate University with a major in Japanese.
