December 9, 2010

WFG National Title Insurance Co. has tabbed Adrienne Mann to lead national agency group, while also appointing Gael Uhlig as national agency counsel.

With WFG National Title, Mann will oversee the company’s national agency group, with a focus on growing and maintaining relationships with agencies producing in a multi-state environment.

“I look forward to collaborating with title agents throughout the industry,” said Mann. “As the industry changes, it is critical that we work together with independent title agents, and serve as a support system for them. We are facing a real opportunity, and I’m pleased to embrace it.”

Mann joins WFG National Title with 22 years of industry experience. Most recently, Mann was founder and CEO of Mandrien Corporation, a national consulting firm specializing in national agency administration and compliance for title agents and underwriters. Before that, she served 18 years with one of the industry’s largest underwriters, including an eight year stint as operations manager for its national agency division. She has also worked with a number of lenders as well. “Adrienne exemplifies the WFG National Title philosophy,” said WFG National Title Executive Vice President Joseph Drum, Esq. “She brings an infectious enthusiasm, a wealth of industry experience and, above all, a desire to serve as a resource for title agents.”

Uhlig will oversee issues of national underwriting for WFG National Title’s national (multi-state) agencies.

“Gael has a stellar reputation for his practical understanding of compliance issues facing title agents not just in Florida, but across the nation,” Drum said. “His integrity, work ethic and extraordinarily impressive skill sets have already made Gael another deep resource for WFG’s agents in this changing market.” Uhlig will also oversee WFG National Title’s forms and rate filings nationwide.

Uhlig has 18 years of title industry experience, most recently serving as General Counsel for Mandrien Corporation, a national consulting firm specializing in national agency administration and compliance for title agents and underwriters. Before that, he spent eight years as Vice President and Title Counsel for one of the industry’s largest title insurers. During that period, Uhlig was responsible for legal compliance and policy, and authored several internal guides regarding state and federal laws pertaining to the consumer mortgage industry. Additionally, Uhlig was responsible for establishing state-by-state transactional and procedural underwriting policy.
