WFG Names National Agency Manager

April 11, 2023

WFG National Title Insurance Co. appointed industry veteran David Jenkins as senior vice president and national agency manager.

Jenkins returns to WFG, where he served as senior national agency underwriting counsel from 2017 to 2020. In his new role, he’ll support WFG’s more than 1,700 agents, drive expansion for both new and existing national and regional agents, and leverage the resources WFG provides its agents to help them increase their market share.

“In addition to our corporate cornerstones of taking time and cost out of the real estate transaction, openly communicating, collaborating, and co-existing with our agents, and obsessing about service, WFG is committed to delivering an exceptional customer experience for our agents, their clients, and the consumers we collectively serve," said Gene Rebadow, executive vice president of agency operations. "This means empowering our agents with the knowledge, resources, and tools they need to differentiate themselves and succeed in any market. David is incredibly knowledgeable, well-respected and extremely passionate about supporting the needs of our agents and elevating the experience for all participants.”

Jenkins started in the industry 37 years ago during high school working for his family’s title insurance agency as a courthouse title searcher every day after school. Since then, he has served in a variety of roles within the title and settlement services industry, providing him with a working knowledge of nearly every aspect of the industry, from the courthouse to closing, to compliance and claims. Since 2009, Jenkins has worked in various senior-level positions for several national title insurance agencies and companies. He spent six of those years working for a large national title agent specializing in REO, finishing his tenure there as Director of National Title Operations. Most recently, he served for two years as national underwriting and expansion counsel for a national title insurer and its affiliated agency. These experiences have given him a solid understanding of the pressures that national agents face when meeting customer expectations.

“I am honored and happy to be rejoining WFG in my new role,” Jenkins said. “Despite the headwinds our industry is facing, we see this as a great opportunity to help our agents explore new avenues of growth and take advantage of everything WFG has to offer. Our vendor service agreement program enables our agents to expand into new markets with higher than usual barriers to entry along with their customers. WFG Blocks and other support programs offer our agents ways to reduce the time and cost of completing basic business functions, freeing them to focus on their core business. In addition, we have an underwriting team that is second-to-none in the industry and can help close even the toughest deals."
