NATIC Names Illinois State Agency Manager

April 25, 2017

North American Title Insurance Co. (NATIC) has hired Shawn Neely as Illinois state agency manager. He will oversee agency operations in that state, while securing and servicing title agents to promote new and increased business activity.

“As a second-generation title professional, Shawn’s small business experience, as well as his time as an industry vendor working with independent agents, will allow him to bring fresh perspectives to the agents he will be working with in the Illinois region,” said Rich Griffin, NATIC vice president and national sales manager. “In addition, Shawn is engaging and genuinely interested in assisting agents to put NATIC’s robust resources to work in crafting solutions to challenges they face.”

Neely grew up in the title industry, launching his career at the age of 16 at his family’s Illinois-based agency. Initially, he managed new orders, handled recordings and performed other administrative tasks. Ultimately, he advanced to closing officer, facilitating at-home and after-hour closings throughout the Chicago area. Later, he served as a sales executive for HiPOINT Technology Services for several years. Prior to joining NATIC, Neely was vice president of sales and marketing in the Midwest for RynohLive.

“My long history of working for an independent, family-owned title agency and my familiarity with current technology and tools arm me to help agents optimize their operations and focus on the critical areas that stimulate growth,” Neely said. “I’m impressed with the powerful sense of teamwork and comradery within the NATIC team. I look forward to growing the NATIC agent network and helping independent agents in Illinois flourish.”
