RISMEDIA, May 13, 2008-First American Title Insurance Company announced that Tony Anton has been named director general of the company’s operations in Mexico. A first-generation American with family ties to Mexico, Anton’s knowledge of the country’s market and culture will assist him with the implementation of new strategies for the Mexican operation, as well as the coordination of activities that service and support the Mexican market.
According to the company, Anton began his tenure with First American in 2004, when he joined the company’s San Diego, Calif., office as a development specialist with the Strategic Markets Division. He was founder and president of San Diego’s first National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP) chapter and was instrumental in the development of the San Diego Housing Opportunities Collaborative, the county’s first umbrella organization for the nonprofit housing sector. His initial contact with First American’s international operations came as a result of his efforts to increase affordable housing options for Southern Californians in Baja California Norte.
“As America’s 76 million baby boomers approach retirement, we will see unprecedented demand for second homes, vacations homes and retirement homes,” stated Anton. “We have a unique opportunity and a responsibility to secure their future homes in Mexico just as we have secured their homes in the United States.”
Anton holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from San Diego State University. He was born in San Diego, where he still lives with his wife and two sons.
