North American Title Group Promotes Sledd to Legal and Regulatory Compliance Specialist

May 15, 2014

North American Title Group has promoted Kimberly Sledd to legal and regulatory compliance specialist, reporting to General Counsel Jeff Howeth. Sledd had previously served as vice president of sales, marketing and business development for the Mid Atlantic region of North American Title Co., an agency subsidiary.

"The regulatory environment for title and escrow entities has changed dramatically with the assumption by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) of responsibility for administration and enforcement of RESPA," Howeth said. "It is more important than ever to operate in a compliant manner. We are working on several levels to implement policies and procedures required to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations that affect the company's operations across both its agency and underwriter subsidiaries or that are required under the American Land Title Association Best Practices framework. ALTA Best Practices are gaining increased acceptance both within our industry and throughout the broader financial services industry.”

Sledd has more than 14 years' experience in global business services, title insurance and mortgage lending. Previous to her arrival at North American Title, she served as a strategic account executive for a global firm offering financial and technology solutions for lenders, brokers and services.

"At North American Title, we are committed to mitigating risk through sound business practices that include empowering associates with the knowledge and support to remain compliant," Sledd said. "I feel privileged to be a part of this vital effort, and I look forward to supporting executive management as we continue developing an even stronger value proposition for our stakeholders."
