September 26, 2005

SANTA ANA, Calif., - The First American Corporation (NYSE: FAF) announced that George S. Livermore has been promoted to president of the company’s Property Information Group. Assuming the role previously held by Dennis J. Gilmore, who was promoted to chief operating officer for the corporation in November 2004, Livermore will now oversee Data Trace, Data Tree and the Property Information Group staff. He also will maintain his duties as president of First American Real Estate Solutions, a position he has held since 1997.

“Our Property Information Group has performed exceptionally well in recent years, and much of that success can be directly attributed to George and his management team at RES,” said Parker S. Kennedy, chairman and chief executive officer of The First American Corporation. “George’s visionary leadership will play an important role as First American continues to innovate and set new standards for performance in the real estate information industry.”

Livermore began his career in the real estate information business in 1984 at Dynacomp, which was later acquired by TRW. He was named regional vice president of sales for TRW REDI Property Data in 1991, then vice president of national sales in 1994. His tenure with First American began when Experian, formerly TRW Information Systems & Services, merged its real estate information businesses with First American’s Real Estate Information Services division in 1997 and he was appointed president of the resulting entity, First American Real Estate Solutions (RES). His role was expanded in 2000, when he was named president of the limited partnership company created by the combination of Transamerica’s Intellitech real estate information business and RES.

Livermore holds a bachelor of science degree in business administration from the University of Arizona. He currently resides in Orange, Calif., with his wife, Laura, and their two children.
