November 17, 2011

Barry Scholnik, vice president and Florida underwriting counsel of Stewart Title Guaranty Co., was recently honored with the Raymond O. Denham award for his work in the Florida Land Title Association (FLTA). The award is given each year to an FLTA member who has rendered the highest degree of service and support to the organization.

“We congratulate Barry on his outstanding work with the FLTA,” said Mark Johnson, vice president and southeast regional underwriting counsel of Stewart Title Guaranty Company. “His work with the FLTA is very important, as it not only promotes and protects the title industry, but also shows Stewart to be a leader in supporting these efforts. All of Stewart joins me in congratulating him on this outstanding accomplishment.”

Scholnik began working at Stewart in 1995 and has worked in the title insurance industry since 1982. He currently serves as a member of the FLTA’s Governmental and Judicial Affairs Committee and has previously served the FLTA as president and chairman of the Insurer’s Section.

"Barry’s efforts not only within the FLTA, but in our industry in general, are very well respected,” said Don Mosby, senior vice president and Florida agency services district manager of Stewart Title Guaranty Company. “He is one-of-a-kind, and Stewart is very fortunate to have him as an associate.”

A native of Plainfield, N.J., Scholnik received his undergraduate degree from Emory University and his law degree from the University of Miami School of Law. He was admitted to The Florida Bar in 1980.
