I have accepted that summer is coming to an end, the leaves are starting to turn, and the winds of change are upon us both literally and figuratively. As I write this, a terrible storm is going through my area in Mid-Michigan. It’s a powerful enough system that it prompted the tornado sirens to go off and scare my poor dog. I’m not a fan of big storms, but with them comes change, and I’m always up for that challenge.
There’s an old Bob Dylan song called “The Times They Are A-Changin”, and its core message is that change in life is a constant. It’s not always easy, and sometimes it’s downright painful, but we must accept that it’s inevitable. First National Title Insurance is going through a tremendous amount of change as it continues to grow and expand throughout the country. The most recent here in the Great Lakes Region is the addition of Tim Donovan as Regional Underwriting Counsel. Tim’s eclectic background in the industry will assist and support our title agents as they also navigate through constant change in our industry, and I’m more than delighted to have Tim join our team. You can read more about his background and how to contact him here.
All of us at FNTI believe that when you have great leadership and teammates that support each other through change, it lessens the pain and dampens the fear that can cripple a company’s growth and long-term sustainability. Our growing team is working together daily to build upon a solid foundation and evolve with our title agents to provide solutions to their ever-changing needs.
Since change is in the air, I listened to Bob’s 1964 song this morning and I found it interesting that it’s message still rings true today. Now as I wait for the storm to pass and hope my dog will eventually come out from under the bed, I decided to have some fun and make a few “changes” to the lyrics. I’m really looking forward to Fall and the changes Tim and I will be bringing to you, and so I leave you with this…
“Come gather ‘round people wherever you roam, you know your company is worth savin’ so you shouldn’t wander out there alone. First National Title Insurance Company is unlike the old and aging, we’re your true partner, we’re cool and engaging. Come grow with us and experience the innovation, for the times…they are a changin.”
