Old Republic National Title Insurance Co. announced personnel changes, including the addition of a former U.S. Treasurer to its team and promotion of a manager to oversee agency relations with members of Attorney’s Title Fund Services.

Rosario Marin joined Old Republic Default Management Services (ORDMS), a division of Old Republic Title. She will be appointed to the position of vice president of business relations for ORDMS in the Orange, Calif., office.

Marin will work closely with senior management to create and implement business strategies to assist clients servicing residential and commercial portfolios. She will report directly to Carl Brown, president, ORDMS.

"Rosario is a great addition to our management team and will lead our efforts in identifying and developing strategic business opportunities. Her past experiences will provide us with insight and direction that is unique for an organization such as ours," Brown said.

Most recently, she served as the Secretary of the California State and Consumer Services Agency. From late 2001 to mid-2003, Marin served as U.S. Treasurer. She also was councilwoman and mayor for the city of Huntington Park, Calif., from 1994 to 2001. Prior to her public service, she worked in the banking and telecommunications industries.

John Voso Jr., was promoted to agency relations manager for the Attorneys’ Title Division, which was formed as a result of Old Republic’s recent joint venture with Attorneys’ Title Fund Services LLC (ATFS), based in Orlando, Fla.

Additionally, Voso will be appointed to senior vice president of the Attorney’s Title Division. He will report directly to Chuck Kovaleski, who recently was hired as an executive vice president of Old Republic Title and division manager for ATFS.

“John’s focus, as agency relations manager, will be to promote Old Republic National Title Insurance Co.’s financial strength and services to over 6,000 member agents of ATFS; while Chuck’s focus, as division manager, will be to manage underwriting relationships. We are truly fortunate to have Chuck and John spearheading the growth and development of the Attorneys’ Title Division,” said Rande Yeager, president, chairman and CEO of Old Republic Title.

“John is a consummate title professional, a gifted salesperson and very knowledgeable about agency operations and administration,” said Yeager. “Since joining us in 2002, as vice president and East Central Division agency sales manager, he has significantly contributed to the growth of our East Central Division, based in Independence, Ohio. John has done this by signing numerous agents and assisting in the development of a variety of seminars and training programs for our agents. In addition, he is a leader who has achieved national prominence as the current chair of TIPAC, which is the American Land Title Association’s political action committee,” said Yeager.

Voso has more than 28 years of experience in the real estate and title insurance industries, with 22 of those years being specifically devoted to title insurance. He continues to be an active member of the Ohio Land Title Association, where he was its president from 2002-2003.
