Ernst Promotes Donahue to Director of Strategic Accounts

March 3, 2016

Ernst Publishing Co., a provider of technology and closing cost data for the real estate and home finance industries for the past 26 years, promoted Lisa Donahue to director of strategic accounts for the title and settlement agent market. In her new role, she will build relationships with users of the company's settlement agent gateway platform and custom title solutions.

"In the wake of TRID, we have found that technology has gone from a 'need to have' proposition to a critical concern, especially on the title and settlement agent side of the business," said Jan Clark, vice president of sales and marketing for Ernst Publishing. "No one in the industry knows this business as well as Lisa does and we're very fortunate to have her on our team. Putting her into this new position will allow her to help the companies that desperately need our solutions get the most out of them."

Donahue, who has worked in the industry for nearly 25 years, joined Ernst in the fall of 2013. In a release, the company said she has been an integral part of the implementation of technology that Ernst designed to help prevent thousands of smaller settlement agents from being forced out of the business by TRID compliance concerns.

"The compliance environment is so difficult right now that title and settlement agents who make a misstep can be literally forced from the business," Donahue said. "We have the technology to allow these critically important players to offer fully compliant products and services and meet the needs of lenders who are concerned with the risk of noncompliance.”
