WFG Appoints National Escrow Advisor

May 5, 2020

WFG National Title Insurance Co. has named Natalie Koonce as vice president and national escrow advisor.

Koonce, who most recently served as president of the Colorado division of North American Title of Colorado, will provide guidance to her division’s escrow managers and staff regarding best practices as well as company escrow policies and procedures applicable to escrow operations across the country. She will also monitor regulatory and legislative changes, review and implement best practices in the settlement services industry across the country and make recommendations to executive management regarding settlement services.

“During a distinguished career in positions of responsibility she substantially grew each company’s market share, client base, staff and reputation within the industry,” said Joseph McCabe, WFG executive vice president and general counsel. “She has a remarkable ability to generate excellence from her teams through personal encouragement and motivation.”

Prior to her role as president of the Colorado division of North American Title of Colorado, she was NATC’s Mountain Region settlement services manager. This involved serving as liaison for CFPB/TRID implementation by coordinating with legal, compliance, division presidents and escrow departments for four states, as well as preparing escrow teams and division presidents for the ALTA Best Practice certifications audit.

Koonce entered the title world in 2000, at Stewart Title, where she began her seven-year stint first as Transaction Coordinator, an extension of the sales team. Within her first two years she was promoted to branch manager, closing transactions for both residential and commercial properties. She moved to Empire Title in 2007, where she served as an escrow officer.

“I’m very excited to join WFG, especially as they launch their second decade,” Koonce said. “I look forward to contributing to WFG’s dependability for its title agents to deliver accurate, reliable services to clients. But I will also work to create an environment in which our staff and our associates are able to perform beyond their expectations.”
