New Millennium Title, a wholly owned subsidiary of Williston Financial Group LLC (WFG), appointed a vice president who will serve on the executive committee of WFG.
Williston Financial Group LLC (WFG) has appointed William Moody as executive vice president. Moody will lead wholly owned subsidiary New Millennium Title, WFG’s lender services division, from the division’s new headquarters in Simi Valley, Calif. Moody will also serve on the executive committee of WFG.
Moody has 34 years of experience in the mortgage and settlement services industry, most recently as founder, president and chief executive officer of national settlement services firm Lender’s First Choice. He also spent 11 years as a president of financial services with Coast Federal Bank.
“WFG and New Millennium Title are a great fit for this market,” Moody said. “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. This fits our business model, which centers on communication, collaboration and co-existence.”
New Millennium Title operates in all 50 states. The division handles a range of settlement services, including title insurance and closing/escrow services, for both commercial and residential transactions.
WFG President and Chief Executive Officer Patrick Stone said that Moody is an excellent match for the company’s approach to the market.
“Bill has tremendous experience on both the lending and settlement side of the real estate transaction,” Stone said. “He strives to adapt his services to meet the needs of the customer, rather than forcing the customer to fit his operation. At a time when mortgage lenders need flexibility and speed from their partners, Moody will be an asset to New Millennium’s clients.”
