FNF Family of Companies Announces New Divisional Leadership

August 15, 2023

The FNF Family of Companies have named David Townsend NTP as senior vice president. In this role, he will oversee FNF’s Agency Division in the Midwest and Midsouth regions. Townsend takes on this role as FNF’s Rob Wineman transitions to a new position within the company.

“Our agents will benefit greatly from David’s expertise and dedication to the land title industry,” said Steve Day, president of Agency Operations for FNF. “David founded his own underwriter and worked previously with many of the agents he will now serve in his home territory of the Midwest and Midsouth. I think the next few months of David working alongside Rob Wineman will be a force to reckon with in our industry.”

Before Wineman transitions to a new role in the company, he will work with Townsend to ensure FNF’s agents understand these changes and continue to feel supported throughout this process. 

Prior to joining FNF, Townsend was CEO of Agents National Title Insurance Co. He is a current member of ALTA’s Board of Governors and chair of the Underwriters Section. 

“I am excited to work with agents on a larger scale at FNF,” Townsend said. “I have experienced all aspects of creating, growing, and evolving an underwriter focused on the needs of agents. I am looking forward to helping introduce new technologies, strategies and methods to our FNF agents.”

“The amount of FNF agent resources is staggering,” Townsend continued. “From technology to production, everything is first class and focused on the agent and their operation. I am also excited to connect agents to national services provided by FNF such as our commercial services to help bolster business as well.”

Wineman has served the FNF Family of Companies for more than 30 years, most recently as division agency manager for Midwest and Midsouth covering 18 states in Agency Operations. After the transition, he will focus more directly with agents educational and operational needs through consultations and business analysis.

“We appreciate all of Rob’s service to FNF and our agents over the years and are excited to see Rob continue his leadership at FNF during this transition,” Day said. “Rob’s insight and experience serving our agents for more than 30 years is celebrated by many throughout the industry and we are grateful for his dedication.”

Wineman began his career in the title industry with Chicago Title as an attorney examiner after completing law school at Syracuse University in 1990.

“My priority has always been developing unique, agent-centered products and services to help them grow and succeed,” Wineman said. “I look forward to working alongside David for several months to provide consistency for our agents and using our combined experience to create new strategies for success in this marketplace.”
