Ernst Names AVP of Strategic Alliances
October 15, 2013
Ernst Publishing Co. announced that title industry veteran Lisa Donahue joined the company as assistant vice president of strategic alliances. In her new role, Donahue will head up the company’s reseller division, along with working with title and settlement companies across the country.
“Bringing Lisa onboard is a big win for Ernst,” said Gregory E. Teal, president and chief executive officer of Ernst Publishing. “She is well known in our industry and she knows our products and services very well. She’s a great advocate for the company and exactly the type of executive we want working in the field to introduce more firms to the value Ernst brings.”
Donahue has 25 years of experience in this industry and has held a variety of management positions with General American Corp. (GAC), which was acquired by ISGN. Most recently, she served as vice president of sales and client relations for that firm and was responsible for the expansion and servicing of existing customer partnerships utilizing the GATORS product. During her tenure with the company, Donahue developed a wealth of knowledge, including appraisals, titles, tax certifications and customer service.
“It’s very exciting to be part of a company that provides vital information to the mortgage and real estate industries,” Donahue said. “With all the regulatory changes that are taking place, it can be very difficult and even overwhelming for executives trying to keep their companies compliant. Ernst understands those challenges and takes pride in educating their clients. Ernst offers a suite of products that are not only customizable and easy to use, but also comprehensive in their ability to meet client needs. For almost 10 years, I was an Ernst client at GAC and experienced first-hand the platinum level of service and the quality of data that this company guarantees.”
