Southern Title’s Stewart Honored with Industry Award from FLTA

November 25, 2014

The Florida Land Title Association (FLTA) awarded its prestigious Raymond O. Denham Award to Shelley Stewart CLC NTP, president of Southern Title, during at its 2014 Annual Convention.

The award is presented to an individual who has shown exemplary leadership, outstanding service to the association and a tireless commitment to the industry. Over the course of her career, Stewart has been the leading force behind a variety of title insurance initiatives on both a local, state and national level. She served as president of FLTA in 2008, was a member of the Florida Title Insurance Advisory Council and has provided extensive leadership and guidance on legislative issues.

Through her tireless efforts, she has educated legislators and regulators about the value of title insurance, resulting in a better understanding of how the title industry protects the investments of property owners throughout the nation.

“There is no one more selflessly dedicated to the success of our industry and the protection of our home buyers and consumers,” said Jeff Stein, FLTA president. “It is and has been a singular honor for me to share in her enthusiasm and dedication over these years. No one is more deserving of this high honor from our association.”

In addition to her efforts on a state level, Stewart has testified before Congress on industry issues and is an active member with ALTA, serving on its National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) Industry Liaison Committee and Government Affairs Committee. She recently earned the National Title Professional designation. Stewart is the only title agent with that credential in Florida. Because of her leadership, industry commitment and community service efforts, the Volusia/Flagler Business Report named Stewart to its 9th Annual Influential Women in Business list. At last month’s Florida Home Builder’s Association (FHBA) Fall Leadership Conference, Stewart was elected as membership director for the Florida Home Builder’s Association.
