North American Title Appoints Mid-Atlantic Region State Agency Manager

March 14, 2017

North American Title Insurance Co. (NATIC) has named Selena Smart as the state agency manager for the Mid-Atlantic region, which includes Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Smart brings 12 years' experience, co-ownership of an abstractor firm and a family background in the title industry to this position.

"This is a family business for Selena, so she truly has decades of experience in title—a rare find for someone at this point in her career," said Rich Griffin, NATIC vice president and national sales manager. "In addition, as a former business owner, Selena understands what it takes to handle a successful operation. Her ability to apply those lessons to the day-to-day life of an agent will be a real value-add to them."

Most recently, Smart was co-owner and an abstractor for MS Welch Inc. She had previously worked as a title abstractor for Welch Abstracts and prior to that as director of sales and marketing for Beltway Title. Active in her community, Smart served on the social committee of the Howard County Association of Realtors and volunteer chairman for the Melwood Prince George's County Open.

"Coming from the agent side of the title business gives me the unique ability to anticipate what an agent will need," Smart said. "I look forward to helping agents grow their business and succeed by providing them with the highly skilled support system that NATIC offers."
