Monarch Title Names New President

January 10, 2023

Christy Lyon has been promoted to president at Missouri-based Monarch Title Company Inc.

CEO Chuck Bowman said Lyon has been a key part of Monarch Title’s success. She joined the company in April 2019 as branch manager in the Jefferson City office, where she was successful in making that branch the highest revenue-generating office in the company’s fleet of offices. Lyon has 25 years of experience in the title insurance business as senior escrow closer and manager with several companies.

Monarch Title, which was founded in 2001, employs 20 people in the mid-Missouri area with a motto “Service with Distinction.” In addition to Jefferson City, Monarch Title has offices in Columbia, Boonville, Marceline and Centralia, Mo.

Bowman, who has been a shareholder of the company since 2002, has served as president since 2012. He and his wife, Pam, bought the company in January 2020. Bowman said he will remain as CEO/owner, but promoted Lyon as part of his succession plan. He plans to retire at the end of 2023.

“As owner, I will stay involved and still come into the office periodically in 2024, but wanted to have someone who can run the day to day operations,” Bowman said.
