Tom Fischer has been named president and chief executive officer of North American Title Group (NATG), succeeding Linda Reed, who is remaining in an advisory role until the end of the year. Fischer brings nearly 25 years of leadership in legal, title, escrow and homebuilder operations to this position.
“We are very happy to introduce Tom Fischer as the new president of the North American Title Group,” says Bruce Gross, Lennar Corp. vice president and chief financial officer. Lennar Corp. is the parent company of North American Title.
“The combination of Tom’s national title, retail and escrow operations experience, his leadership style and skills, and his knowledge of homebuilder sales and operations make this opportunity a perfect fit for him and for North American Title,” says Gross. “He will be instrumental in the stewardship and continued success of the company.”
Fischer’s career began as an attorney at a leading Ohio law firm. After eight years in the legal profession, he started a title agency in 1998 that was later sold to a Centex Homes subsidiary, Commerce Title. Fischer served as regional vice president, senior vice president, and ultimately as president of Commerce Title Insurance Co., and executive vice president, director of National Title Operations for Commerce Title Co.
