Industry veteran Sheckler to oversee expansion
Portland, OR January 24, 2018 WFG National Title Insurance Company (“WFG”), a Williston Financial Group company, is growing its National Commercial Services Division, and has appointed industry veteran Erin Sheckler to drive the effort.
Based in Seattle and designed to support a national footprint, the expanded commercial group will be overseen by Erin Sheckler, SVP, National Commercial Services Division. Her primary focus will be to grow WFG’s commercial market share by expanding the commercial presence in direct owned western operations while leveraging the WFG agency network in the eastern states through the National Agency Commercial Services group, which is based in Orlando, Florida.
Sheckler, who joined WFG in May, 2017, brings almost 20 years of commercial real estate and escrow experience to the position, most recently serving as President of a Bellevue, Washington-based title company. Sheckler has also served in positions of commercial sales and escrow during her career, including experience with one of the industry’s largest underwriters.
According to Sheckler, WFG’s growing commercial division will be supported by multiple Lloyd’s of London syndicates. “Our clients will be supported by a deep resource unlike any other in the industry, empowering them to compete for the very largest commercial transactions,” she said.
“Erin has built successful operations repeatedly throughout her career,” said Patrick Stone, Chairman and CEO of WFG. “We fully expect that her legal training, her operational experience, her knowledge of commercial real estate, her attention to detail and unwavering focus on the client will fuel the rapid expansion of her division.”
