First American Title Insurance Company announced today that Somaia (Sam) Zaki has been appointed executive vice president, national sales manager for the company’s Lenders Advantage division.
In this new role, Zaki and her team will be responsible for bringing First American’s full complement of lending solutions to a new and expanding customer base, as well as strengthening First American’s relationships with its existing customers. She will work closely with Patrick E. McLaughlin, division president for National Lenders Advantage, and other key individuals within the division to present newly developed products and create strategic partnerships that are designed to support lenders’ needs in this competitive and challenging market.
“Sam’s vast experience and proven track record in successfully providing top-notch customer service and business solutions to the nation’s largest lending institutions make her uniquely suited to expand and lead the National Lenders Advantage sales team,” said McLaughlin. “Having worked in several areas of our industry, she understands the importance of building relationships, but also knows the importance of helping our lender clients close as many transactions as possible.”
Zaki initially joined First American in 1988.
