WFG Acquires California-based Title Agency
November 13, 2012
Williston Financial Group, the parent company of WFG National Title Insurance Co. and WFG Title Insurance Co., has acquired ITC Holdings, Inc., the parent company of Investors Title Co. in California. Investors Title is a California-licensed title agency operating in six counties in southern California.
WFG also recently opened a commercial retail office in Irvine, Calif., and a direct operation in Campbell, Calif. The WFG family is licensed to provide title insurance in 41 states nationwide.
With the acquisition, WFG increases its national footprint with an established presence in the southern California market. Current Investors Title CEO Jeff Fox will manage the Orange, San Diego, San Bernardino and Riverside county offices. Current Investors Title President Chris White will manage Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
“This transaction is another important step in WFG’s strategic business plan,” said WFG President and CEO Patrick Stone. “By teaming with an established and reputable operation already in place, we have hit the ground running and grown our presence in a critical market. More important, the exceptional management and staff in place in the new offices ensure that WFG will maintain its core philosophy of serving the customer.”
