Illinois Land Title Association Names New Executive Director

January 31, 2023

The Illinois Land Title Association (ILTA) named Christine Sparks as its executive director.

Sparks is a past president of ILTA and chaired various association committees, including the Title Counsel Committee.

Prior to joining ILTA, Sparks was chief operating officer and senior vice president at Attorneys’ Title Guaranty Fund Inc. (ATG). Before joining ATG in 2003, she was an associate at the law firm of Jump & Associates PC. Sparks has obtained professional designations from ALTA and ILTA. She is a member of the Illinois State and Chicago bar associations.

“Christine’s knowledge of the industry, strong leadership skills and understanding of the daily challenges we face, along with her vision will move ILTA to the next level,” said Mary Pellegrini, president of ILTA.

Indiana and Illinois are friendly neighbors who like to share the same acronym for their Land Title Associations. While Sparks is the new executive director of the Illinois Land Title Association, Bethany Paden continues her role as the executive director of the Indiana Land Title Association. Both look forward to assisting their members, especially those who operate in both states.
