First American Names New President of Direct Division

Judd Hoffman

First American Title Insurance Company has announced the promotion of Judd Hoffman to the position of president of the company’s Direct Division. The promotion will take effect on January 1, 2017.

Current Direct Division President Curt Casperson will assist with the transition through the remainder of the year and will remain with First American Title through April 2018. Hoffman is based out of the company’s Santa Ana, California, office.

Hoffman began his career with First American Title six years ago in the position of sales manager in the company’s Los Angeles office and since then has amassed a six-year track record of generating impressive results and promoting a positive workplace culture, according to First American. In 2012, Hoffman’s success in the sales manager role resulted in a promotion to vice president, county operations and sales manager for both Los Angeles and Ventura counties in California. In that role, Hoffman oversaw all aspects of the title, escrow, and sales activities.

In 2013, Hoffman’s responsibilities were expanded to include executive regional management of the division’s Southern California operations. Also at that time, he was named chief revenue officer of First American Title’s Direct Division, with the primary focus of driving growth in key strategic markets, according to the company’s announcements.

Prior to joining First American Title, Hoffman served as president and CEO of a publicly traded medical technology company.
