California Credit Union Launches Title Company

November 10, 2015

A new, California-based title insurance company has been launched to serve credit unions, mortgage bankers and institutional lenders in California.

California Members Title Insurance Company, an independent company owned by California Credit Union, has received its certification from the California Department of Insurance.

Frank Berriz, a 40-year industry veteran, will serve as president and CEO of California members Title. He worked in the title industry for several years before co-founding American Coast Title in southern California in 1988 and running the company until 2013, when he sold his interest in it.

“We see ourselves as an ally of the lending community, able to give their members and customers the levels of care, attention, and service that they deserve and are accustomed to,” Berriz said. “Our senior management has great familiarity with credit unions’ and lenders’ processes, and we are committed to serving them.”
