WFG National Title Taps Industry Veteran to Grow Footprint in Washington

July 28, 2011

Williston Financial Group named title industry veteran Lynn Riedel as its president and manager of its Puget Sound Division. Riedel will oversee the former Northpoint Escrow & Title operation, acquired by WFG in July.

As the president and division manager, Riedel will oversee the growth and maintenance of a full service title, escrow and settlement services company serving Puget Sound, Snohomish, King and Pierce counties in Washington, including the Seattle and Tacoma metropolitan areas. She is a native Washingtonian with over 33 years experience in the title and escrow industry, most recently having served as a vice president with the former Northpoint Escrow & Title. Prior to joining Northpoint in 2009, Lynn served as executive vice president and NW regional leader for two of the industry’s largest national underwriters. In those positions, she had direct responsibility for operations in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, Colorado, Utah and Northern California.

“Lynn is an ideal choice to represent the client-oriented approach of WFG National Title in the Seattle and Tacoma markets,” said WFG President and CEO Patrick Stone. “Throughout her career, she has demonstrated a passion for communicating and collaborating with her clients. As such, we are comfortable that our increased presence in the Puget Sound markets will be led by someone in whom businesses there are already confident.”
