“Chuck is a familiar face to agents across the title industry, and his addition to WFG will be welcomed” said WFG National Title Executive Vice President Joseph Drum, Esq. “He is very knowledgeable about the market, the territory and the unique issues facing Midwestern title agents, and will be an excellent resource for them.”
