September 18, 1995, SANTA ANA, CALIFORNIA
Security was formed in 1964 by Robison and her husband Dan, who died in February 1995. The company has branch operations in Cedar City, Fillmore, St. George and Richfield, and will soon be expanding to Kanab in Kane County. All branches and employees will now be part of the First American Title Company of Utah network. Wes and Leisa Jensen will be handling the managerial duties for the Southern Utah operations. Wes, who joined First American in 1976, will be regional manager, and Leisa, who has been with the company since 1981, will serve as regional escrow administrator. Both began their careers with First American in Ogden, Utah.
"Southern Utah is the strongest title insurance market in Utah," said Lane Gidney, president of First American Title Company of Utah. "The addition of this well-respected company will certainly strengthen First American's number one market share position in the state of Utah."
