Williston Financial Group, LLC (WFG) has named title industry veteran Lynn Riedel president and manager of its Puget Sound division.
Riedel will oversee the former Northpoint Escrow & Title operation, acquired by WFG in July 2011. She is responsible for the growth and maintenance of the full service title, escrow, and settlement services company serving Puget Sound, Snohomish, King, and Pierce counties in Washington, including the Seattle and Tacoma metropolitan areas.
Riedel has over 33 years’ experience in the title and escrow industry, most recently having served as a VP with Northpoint Escrow & Title. Prior to joining Northpoint in 2009, she served as EVP and Northwest regional leader for two large national underwriters, with direct responsibility for operations in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska, Colorado, Utah, and Northern California.
“Lynn is an ideal choice to represent the client-oriented approach of WFG National Title in the Seattle and Tacoma markets,” said Patrick Stone, WFG president and CEO.
“Throughout her career, she has demonstrated a passion for communicating and collaborating with her clients,” Stone continued. “As such, we are comfortable that our increased presence in the Puget Sound markets will be led by someone in whom businesses there are already confident.”
