Westcor Continues Expansion with Opening of N.J. Operations

August 23, 2010

Westcor Land Title Insurance Co. announced the opening of new agency operations in Red Bank, N.J. The latest opening adds to its national plan of organic expansion coast-to-coast. The new office represents the fourth market expansion in 12 months and is evidence of the title agents’ preference for an alternative agent-centric partner.

Susan Wenzel, formerly with First American, will lead the team as the state agency manager. She comes to Westcor with more than 30 years of experience. Accompanying her is Scott Sumner, formerly with Chicago Title, who will serve as state counsel. Joining the team from Fidelity National is Chris Marra as the New Jersey operations manager and Susan Ney as the office administrator.

“Westcor is known for their consistent best-in-class service and agent support. This is a refreshing welcome to independent agents in New Jersey," Wenzel said. “We look forward to introducing the standard-of-excellence and reliability associated with the Westcor name to title agents and the customers we serve. In times of uncertainty, consistent quality and support instills confidence and provides security.”

Westcor’s steady cycle of national growth and new hires are matched with financial strength. Westcor’s consistent quality balanced with financial stability is why Westcor is recognized as one of the fastest growing title insurance company in the United States.

“Our ability to reach new markets and grow our company is indicative of the quality of Westcor’s selected title agents and new hires,” said Mary O’Donnell, president and chief executive officer of Westcor. “Our people are extensions of the standard of excellence associated with the Westcor name.”
