First American Title establishes regional office in New Orleans, Louisiana
February 20, 1986, SANTA ANA, CALIFORNIA
The facility is serving the states of Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia. Directing operations is John N. Casbon of New Orleans, recently promoted to regional vice president from his former position of vice president and state manager.
In selecting New Orleans as the site for this regional office, President D.P. Kennedy noted that First American has become the largest title insurer in volume and market share in Louisiana. The firm's business is especially strong in the New Orleans area, he said.
Regional duties in the Southeast have been divided between the new office and the existing regional office in Plantation, Florida, headed by Regional Vice President J.H. Boos. He continues to oversee operations in Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina.
The New Orleans office is located in a classic, old brick building, erected in 1840 and registered as a National Historic Landmark. Located at 408 Magazine Street, in the city's historic downtown section, it is across the street from the federal courthouse.
First American Title Insurance Company, one of the nation's oldest and largest title insurers, operates throughout the United States and in England, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
