First American Financial Names President

May 20, 2021

First American Financial Corp. named Kenneth DeGiorgio as president. In his new position, DeGiorgio will have oversight responsibility for the corporation’s operating groups, including title insurance, specialty insurance and data and analytics businesses.

“Ken’s well-deserved appointment follows more than two decades of accomplished service to First American,” said Dennis Gilmore, chief executive officer at First American. “His proven leadership, in-depth understanding of our business, and commitment to First American’s leadership of the digital transformation of the title and settlement industry make him well suited for this role.”

DeGiorgio joined the company in 1999. With the separation of First American from its former parent in 2010, he was named to his most recent position as executive vice president. In that role, he oversaw several corporate functions, including mergers and acquisitions, legal, compliance, information security, enterprise risk management, and marketing and communications. He also took on responsibility for the company’s banking operations and its international division.
