June 25, 2020

Dallas-based First National Title Insurance Co. (FNTI) added three industry experts to its growing footprint in the western United States.

Brian Phillips will oversee the company’s growing western region division, while Devin Storms will serve as the western agency representative and Kim Whitlock will make an immediate impact as title production services specialist in the company’s existing and growing agent services group.

FNTI is now licensed and operational in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Florida, Colorado, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennessee, with expansion plans in 2021 to include 13 additional states. The company’s western regional division includes Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada and Utah.

 “FNTI prides itself on attracting the best talent in the industry, and we are very fortunate to have these three exceptional individuals join our growing team,” said FNTI CEO Chris Phillips. “Brian’s long-time leadership and service in the industry speaks volumes of his ability to lead our western region expansion.”

Phillips has more than a decade of title experience in numerous capacities including claims, underwriting, sales, and executive management. He currently serves on the Land Title Associate of Colorado board of directors as well as several ALTA committees and working groups. Together, these three additions have more than 50 years of experience with agents, lenders and underwriters.

“FNTI is a collective of some of the most respected people in the industry, and I am humbled to have an opportunity to work with and learn from them. I share in their philosophy of providing the best service and support for independent title agents,” Phillips said. “I am excited to join FNTI, and to have the opportunity to continue working with incredibly talented individuals like Devin and Kim.”
