Old Republic Acquires Utah-based Title Company

January 25, 2022

Old Republic National Title Insurance Co. has acquired the operating assets of Utah-based Mountain View Title & Escrow Inc.

The acquisition adds nine office locations and 86 employees to Old Republic Title's existing network of direct operations that includes more than 270 branch and subsidiary office locations nationwide.

Mountain View has served Utah since 1979 with company founder and President Michael Hendry at the helm. He will remain with the company as vice president and senior escrow officer and manager.

"Mountain View's commitment to serving with integrity and a genuine concern for customers in each transaction is an important part of what distinguishes them in the title industry," said Carolyn Monroe, president of Old Republic Title. "The company and its staff have a reputation for exceeding customers' expectations through service excellence and advanced technology. Those priorities align well with the culture and standards of Old Republic Title. We are delighted to welcome Mountain View to the Old Republic family where they will benefit through their alignment with our title group's national network of operations, underwriting expertise and financial strength. This significant alignment will not only help Mountain View meet its strategic objectives, but this significant acquisition also accelerates Old Republic Title's growth plans in Utah, where commercial development, population and job growth are contributing to an unprecedented demand for housing."
