William Moody has joined Williston Financial Group Inc., as an executive vice president and head of its New Millennium Title lender services division. He will also serve on WFG’s executive committee.
Most recently, he was the founder, president and chief executive of Lender’s First Choice, which was shuttered because of the problems of its parent company Mercury Cos. in July 2008.
New Millennium Title is already operating in all 50 states and offers a wide range of settlement services, including title insurance and closing/escrow services, for both commercial and residential transactions. It is headquartered in Simi Valley, Calif.
“We are already serving a variety of large, medium and small national clients, and are pleased to see that flexibility, communication and responsiveness on the part of their settlement services partners are no longer luxuries in the eyes of mortgage lenders. They are now requirements,” Moody said.
WFG is headed up by title industry veteran Patrick Stone. The company is the parent of an underwriter, WFG National Title Insurance Co., Lake Oswego, Ore.
