In New York, national title insurance firm MiT National Land Services added Daniel Eckert to its team to run the company's National Division.
Eckert's title career spans 25 years and has seen him working with clients ranging from real estate investment trusts to banks to large loan officers. Throughout his career, MiT says he's earned a reputation as a leader in providing title and settlement-related services for clients.
Working out of Chicago, he will spearhead MiT's national expansion, actively integrating his clients into the company's platform.
In a statement, MiT president Marc Israel said Eckert was the natural choice for the job.
"When we set out to find an executive to head up our National Division we made a Top 10 list of the skills and qualities we were looking for," Israel said. "Incredibly, when we met Dan we were able to quickly tick off all 10 on our list and then a half dozen more. We are thrilled to have him on board and are looking forward to him helping us grow our national presence."
Eckert expressed similar thoughts about joining the firm.
"Five minutes after I met Marc I knew I wanted to join MiT," he said. "What they are doing both on a national level, and with their continuing education programs for attorneys, brokers, and the title insurance industry, made it a no brainer for me to jump on board and help grow the national division."
