First American Field Services Completes Consolidation to New Corporate Campus

—Move Enhances Business Efficiencies and Provides Combined Resources and Stronger Infrastructure for Future Growth—


August 28, 2006, DALLAS

First American Field Services, a leading provider of onsite property inspections and property integrity solutions, and a member of The First American Corporation (NYSE: FAF) family of companies, has successfully completed its move from Sterling, Va., to First American Mortgage Information Services Group’s new corporate campus in Westlake, Texas.

The corporate campus was designed to bring First American’s Mortgage Information Services Group companies together in a single location, combining resources and internal efficiencies to provide world-class facilities for employees and clients. 

The centralized campus support system will provide First American Field Services with accounting, finance, human resources, technology infrastructure, audit and other ancillary functions. This, in turn, will allow the company to focus its resources on corporate management, order fulfillment, marketing, training, supply chain management and various other functions that will benefit users. 

“Over the past year, First American Field Services has undertaken an unprecedented initiative that has led to the complete overhaul of most of our order fulfillment operations,” said Paul Dauterive, First American Field Services president and chief executive officer. “With our transition to the Westlake campus, we are now able to take advantage of the tremendous resources and process capabilities that The First American Family of Companies offers, and refocus our efforts on our core competency of producing a reliable and timely work product in the field. We fully expect our relocation to directly translate into higher productivity and greater satisfaction for our clients.”
