Agents National Title Expands Underwriting Staff

April 9, 2013

Missouri-based Agents National Title Insurance Co. announced the addition of Michael Bates to its underwriting staff. He will handle underwriting duties for the underwriter’s southern region.

A veteran in the title agency business, Bates has worked on both sides of the fence since graduating from law school at the University of Tennessee. He has held several positions involving underwriting and agency management at a regional agency-only title insurance underwriter prior to founding and operating a full service title agency for 18 years. After selling his agency, Bates accepted an underwriting position with another regional title insurance underwriter and again worked in several positions involving servicing independent title insurance operations in multiple states.
