ALTA Engages Recruitment Consulting Firm for CEO Search

Washington, DC, October 9, 2018 — The American Land Title Association (ALTA), the national trade association of the land title insurance industry, has contracted Korn Ferry, a global organizational consulting firm, to explore candidates for the association’s chief executive officer position.

ALTA’s Search Committee interviewed several firms and recommended to the ALTA Board of Governors that Korn Ferry be tapped to conduct the CEO inquiry. The Committee was impressed with Korn Ferry’s experience in the non-profit sector and their proprietary process. ALTA’s CEO position opened in September following the resignation of Michelle Korsmo.

“Korn Ferry will help the Board find the CEO candidate who best fits ALTA’s priorities and culture,” said ALTA President Steven G. Day NTP. “While we anticipate the search will take some time, ALTA’s Board and leadership have established a plan for continuity, and our staff will maintain the high level of service our members have come to expect.”
