WFG Appoints Agency Manager for Midwest Region

February 23, 2016

WFG National Title Insurance Company has promoted Janell Downing to senior vice president and agency manager of the Midwest region

In her new role, she will be responsible for developing and managing relationships with title agencies throughout the Midwest region, including Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri. Downing succeeds Charles Cain, who was recently named co-manager of the company’s national agency operation with Gene Rebadow. Downing previously served as agency sales and service representative in the Midwest region.

“Janell is an obvious choice to oversee WFG’s continuing growth with agencies in the Midwest,” Cain said. “Our agents have come to know her as a tireless advocate on their behalf and a wellspring of resources and data. She understands that WFG will not and cannot succeed unless its agents succeed, and she demonstrates this to the independent agent on a daily basis.”

Downing has been with the company since 2011 and has over 30 years of title experience.  Before joining WFG National Title, she worked 20 years with one of the industry’s largest underwriters.  She has experience on the agency side, and has held roles with audit, commercial and retail branch positions as well.  Downing serves on the Membership Committee for the Ohio Land Title Association.
