May 7, 2013
Pasadena, Calif.-based D. Bello Associates recently celebrated the 10-year employment anniversary of Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Jeffrey Bates on April 25, 2013.
Since joining D. Bello Associates as a customer service representative in 2003, Bates has served as account manager and vice president. In his current position as executive vice president and chief operating officer, he is responsible for executing the corporate strategy and high-level oversight of business operations.
“It’s been amazing to see Jeff grow up in this industry,” said Doug Bello, company founder and President. “Jeff has become a true expert and a key leader in this company.”
“Although there are many industry employees that have celebrated similar milestones, Jeff’s influence and contributions to D. Bello Associates, our clients and the industry as a whole merits special celebration.” Bello continued, “I think this industry has yet to see the best of Jeff.”
Within the industry, Bates serves as a contributor to the Association for Title Information Management (ATIM), is an active member of the American Land Title Association and is a trustee for ALTA’s Title Insurance Political Action Committee.
“Jeff Bates is a very rare individual in today’s world,” commented Tim Pearson, President of North Dakota Guaranty & Title Company. “Yes, he is bright, forward thinking and positive, but his work life also showcases what customer service is all about. He does not pay lip service to it, he lives it. Personally, Jeff is a great young man who has a lot of character. One usually does not find all of these attributes in abundance in one individual. It is my great pleasure to not only work with Jeff, but to also call him my friend.”
