Westcor Adds Two Underwriters

December 9, 2021

Westcor Land Title Insurance Co. hired Stephanie Marcello as underwriting counsel in the Mid-Atlantic and Erin Stines was added in the same role to support the company’s Pacific Northwest team.

“Westcor is known to hire the best of the best but let me tell you, we knocked it out of the park having the opportunity to add Stephanie to the Mid-Atlantic team,” said Matthew Cunningham, Mid-Atlantic regional agency manager for Westcor. “She will be a fantastic asset to our team and our agents.”

Marcello has worked in the title insurance industry for over 20 years, providing underwriting services across the Mid-Atlantic region. Prior to joining Westcor, she was a title review attorney, as well as, serving as a claims counsel.

After law school, Stines spent two years clerking for a U.S. district court judge in Tacoma, Wash., before joining a Seattle law firm representing owners and lenders in litigation involving real property. While in private practice, she was frequently retained by title insurers to represent their insureds. That experience led her to the position of trial counsel for a national title insurance underwriter and later as underwriting counsel.

“Erin brings a wealth of experience and an energy for innovative underwriting as she works with title agents all throughout the area,” said John Hall, Westcor’s regional agency manager. “I am thrilled to see the impact that she will certainly make in the Pacific Northwest.”
