Stewart Information Services Corp. recently hired John Hamm as chief information officer for its global technology operations, overseeing and leading the company’s technology development and strategy. Current CIO Brad Rable was promoted to president of technology and operations.

“Stewart is a well-known company with a respected brand, and in speaking with Stewart’s executive leadership team, I came to realize there is support and buy-in from the top when it comes to how innovation and technology tie into the vision of becoming the Premier Title Services Company,” Hamm said. “My goal is to build a leading IT department that will enable the employees of Stewart to achieve this vision. Stewart is in the right position to make smart investments and bring new tools and data insights that will differentiate itself in the market.”

Prior to joining Stewart, Hamm served as vice president of information technology at Texas Children’s Hospital where he led the transformation of their patient digital experience. He was responsible for overall strategic vision, maturity, and operations of the electronic health record (EHR), electronic resource planning (ERP), and enterprise integration of more than three hundred critical applications. Hamm has more than 25 years of experience leading IT transformation along with merger and acquisition experience at global Fortune 500 and enterprise non-profit organizations.

“From the beginning, ease-of-use for our customers and clients has been the goal,” said Fred Eppinger, Stewart’s CEO. “Privacy and security will always be at the forefront of our digitization strategy as we design products and services to make it easier for them to use. John’s leadership will be key to developing and executing our technology offerings as Stewart continues to lead and evolve the real estate market.”
