AmTrust Hires Industry Veteran to Expand Marketshare in NYC

August 2, 2016

New York-based AmTrust Title Insurance Company named Marianne Mathieu, a title industry professional with more than 20 years of real estate experience, as vice president and New York State agency manager.

Mathieu will broadly focus on new business development and improving and maintaining existing customer relations, among a host of other responsibilities.

“A key tactic in our goal to establish an agency title insurance foothold nationwide is to hire the best and brightest talent in the industry in designated markets,” said Jason Gordon, president of AmTrust Title. “We are delighted to welcome Marianne aboard.  Highly self-motivated and an excellent communicator, she has a proven track record in attracting new business, and in helping existing customers enhance profit margins through technology and operating efficiencies, to name a few.  She will hit the ground running in New York State, a market which accounts for some of the largest commercial transactions and is among the highest sales volumes in the country.”

Immediately prior to joining AmTrust, Mathieu served as vice president for the New York State agency unit of Fidelity National Title Group, and earlier with Chicago Title Insurance Company. Before that, she held the same post with Old Republic Title Insurance Company in Atlanta. From the mid 1980s to late 1990s, she worked for a wide variety of real estate-related companies, in various capacities including account management, operations, financial planning and foreclosures.

Mathieu is the current president of the New York State Land Title Association and is treasurer and member of the executive board of Commercial Real Estate Women New York.

In June 2016, she was featured in the New York Real Estate Journal’s “Women in Real Estate Spotlight.”  She was a Real Estate Forum “Woman of Influence” in 2015; recognized by Sokol Media as one professional in “15 Women to Watch in Real Estate in 2015;” and was awarded the American Land Title Association’s National Title Professional designation in 2013. She was the first, and is still the only, New York title industry professional to hold that designation.
