WFG beefs up Louisiana staff with underwriting counsel, sales

WFG National Title Insurance Co. announced the addition of Stephen Sklamba and Liz Pecoraro to its Louisiana agency division.

The company said Sklamba will serve as a vice president and Louisiana underwriting counsel for the Louisiana agency group. In this role, he will assist WFG agencies on all underwriting matters. He will be based in New Orleans.

Sklamba is a lifelong resident of New Orleans, who has practiced as an attorney in the New Orleans area for 40 years. His law practice focused on real estate, title insurance, probate, bankruptcy, creditors’ rights and
consumer credit laws. He served as Louisiana underwriting counsel for several major title insurers during the past 20 years and has been a director on the board of the Louisiana Land Title Association since 1992 and is
also a past LLTA President.

Pecoraro will serve as Louisiana state sales manager and be responsible for growing and maintaining relationships with WFG title agents in that state, as well as Mississippi. She will be based in Baton Rouge.

Pecoraro comes to the company after spending 15 years as an agency manager with one of the industry’s largest title underwriters. Before that, she was a branch office supervisor for six years with Norwest, which is now a part of Wells Fargo Corp. She began her career with 12 years in the legal industry. Pecoraro is a state notary in Louisiana, as well as a state signing agent.

Sklamba and Pecoraro will both report to Charles Cain, senior vice president and agency manager for the Midwest region.

“Stephen and Liz are well established and highly regarded by a wide number of independent agencies in Louisiana,” Cain said. “They understand the power and importance of the independent title agent in today’s market, and work as hard as anybody in the industry to support the success of those agents. They are welcome additions to the WFG National Title team.”
