North American Title Insurance Co. (NATIC) has named Sheila Thiele as associate national underwriting and expansion counsel.

In this role, Thiele assists NATIC/Doma’s national underwriting and state expansion team with underwriting, regulatory and compliance matters for the company’s national affiliated title agencies.

Thiele, who has 15 years of legal experience, most recently served as in-house underwriting counsel for a national title insurance company, specializing in real estate owned (REO) foreclosure sales, residential refinance, reverse mortgages and commercial transactions. She previously served as associate counsel for a national title insurance underwriter and as an attorney for two Kansas City area law firms, representing clients in small and large residential and commercial real estate transactions and civil litigation.

“Sheila’s 10 years of national title insurance experience working in high-volume and frequently high-stress environments translates into stellar critical thinking on complex issues, prompt responses, attention to detail and the ability to meet short deadlines,” said David Jenkins, national underwriting and expansion counsel for NATIC/Doma. “She will be an integral addition to our team, helping to research and prepare regulatory and compliant training materials and answer underwriting questions for our affiliated title agent.”
