Doma Expands Underwriting in New England Region

March 15, 2022

Doma Title Insurance Inc. expanded its underwriting footprint with two new hires in the New England adding Laurie Barrett as agency manager and Lony-Ann Sheehan as regional underwriting counsel.

Both will provide agency management and underwriting support to independent title agents and attorneys in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.

A business development and training executive with three decades of experience spanning the title, real estate and mortgage industries, Barrett comes to Doma from a New England-based title company, where she served as business development manager. Previously, Barrett owned and operated The Social Bark, a small business-focused provider of marketing and branding services.

“As we dramatically expand Doma’s sales coverage across the country, we have focused our talent search on experienced sales consultants that can deliver added value to our agents. Laurie meets that standard exceptionally well,” said Glen Stout, regional agency manager for Doma. “She is well-versed in title operations, understands the New England market, and has the training expertise to guide our agents in growing their operations and building their brands.”

Sheehan comes to Doma from a real estate law firm in Massachusetts, where she served as senior title attorney. Prior to that position, Sheehan served as a closing attorney and associate attorney for two other law firms.

“With more than 15 years of experience in real estate transactions and as a practicing attorney, Lony-Ann will be able to assist our agents with efficient and customer-centric underwriting support,” said Sara Valenz, Doma vice president and deputy chief underwriting counsel. “Her strong understanding of the title agent’s needs and the legal knowledge necessary to assess risk in underwriting will position us as a leading title insurance underwriter in our New England states.”
