NATIC Appoints Regional Underwriting Counsel for Eastern Region

February 4, 2016

Danielle Kaiser has joined North American Title Insurance Co. (NATIC) as its vice president and regional underwriting counsel for the Eastern region. Initially focusing on Indiana and Ohio, Kaiser will eventually also support NATIC agents along the East Coast and into the South.

“Danielle is the consummate title professional,” said Valerie Jahn-Grandin, executive vice president and chief underwriting counsel for NATIC. “Her underwriting approach is thorough, yet appropriate for getting the deal closed while protecting parties and the underwriter. In addition, Danielle understands the critical need to take an active role in developing legislation and compliance matters, and is most successful in such a role.”

Most recently, Kaiser spent three years as underwriting counsel for a regional title insurance company. She began her title career in 2007 as director of member services and assistant underwriting counsel for an Indianapolis-based underwriter, and was later promoted to vice president.

“Danielle will be part of NATIC’s growth across the country,” Jahn-Grandin added. “We plan to use her skills to benefit all our agents, regardless of jurisdiction. She will take an active role in agent training on TRID issues as well as broader underwriting issues. As a person who understands agents and enjoys tackling their problem transactions, Danielle welcomes a relationship that involves training and moving that agent to the next level – helping that agent grow and develop to their full potential.”

Kaiser is a member of the Indiana Land Title Association (ILTA), served in 2012 as its president and currently serves as chair of its Government Affairs committee. She has presented various ILTA title professional seminars, provided Lobby Day legislative updates and spoken at numerous industry forums. Kaiser also holds the National Title Professional designation from the American Land Title Association. Kaiser is admitted to practice law in Indiana and is a member of the American Bar Association.

“I have built great relationships with agents through my work in underwriting and also through involvement in industry associations,” Kaiser said. “I’m impressed with NATIC’s approach to title insurance and pleased to be part of a team that seeks growth and opportunities.”
