WFG Names VP of Strategic Growth

September 16, 2021

WFG National Title Insurance Company has hired industry veteran Jason Vasek as vice president of strategic growth.

“We are thrilled to have Jason onboard to support our expansion within the Southern Texas market and beyond,” said Steve Ozonian, WFG’s president and CEO. “We’re fortunate to have someone with his breadth of experience across a range of areas that have been identified as key to WFG’s second decade of growth.”

After serving in the military, Vasek took a job as a receptionist at Texas American Title and was quickly attracted to the work, the people and the service provided. He then went to First American Title, and began his ascent up the traditional operations side of things, from reception and escrow assistant to escrow officer and branch manager. His last role at First American Title was as divisional president in Austin, Texas, where he also oversaw training and development.

Seeing his success, Vasek was recruited to do that same work for another national title company. During his tenure there, he worked in cultural development, leadership training, and emotional intelligence, as well as other development programs for the better part of four years.

Vasek is certified in the John Maxwell program, an international leadership training and development program started by John C. Maxwell, who was chosen as the world’s most influential leadership expert by Inc. Magazine.

“We talk a lot about management in our industry, but we sometimes fail to discuss leadership, which are two separate components,” said Vasek, who has worked in the industry for 25 years. “After getting certified through the John Maxwell leadership program, I started focusing on the leadership component with the constituents and then fell in love with the personal development side of it.”

“I feel we all have that common denominator of trying to figure out how to get out of our own way when it comes to our own personal development,” Vasek added.

He looks forward to being a part of that cultural development at WFG.

“I think what excites me the most about WFG is being able to lay some of that foundation work,” Vasek said. “At WFG, people really know that we care about them, and I think that’s where the loyalty comes from for any group. “I realized about four or five years ago that I wanted to give back in some way, form or fashion to an industry that really helped me as well. Plus, I love the WFG culture and know it will be fun traveling and trying to add value in other states.”
