Jeffrey A. Tischler has joined Old Republic Title as Senior Vice President, Old Republic National Title Insurance Company (ORNTIC), Technology Solutions. Jeff has leadership responsibilities for Pavaso and RamQuest, which are part of Old Republic Title Tech Companies, Inc. He will oversee the delivery of quality, stand-alone digital products and solutions, while focusing on integration initiatives that support Old Republic Title Insurance Group’s overall digital strategy.
“As Old Republic Title moves forward with a focus on the continual coordination of its technology offerings, Pavaso and RamQuest are integral to that process,” said Carolyn Monroe, President, Old Republic National Title Holding Company. “Jeff’s blended background and expertise in financial services technology and title insurance is unique. His in-depth perspective from multiple vantage points is invaluable.”
The majority of Jeff’s career has been in financial and strategic leadership in the financial services and financial technology sectors. He successfully led and managed a variety of companies as a c-level executive for more than 25 years.
Jeff began his career working for one of the “Big Four” accounting firms, where he became a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). He then joined a diversified financial services company which, at the time, was the parent of two title insurance companies, which ultimately merged with a third title insurer to form one of the largest title insurance groups in the nation. As Chief Financial Officer of the group, he played a key role in planning, structuring and implementing the successful integration of the industry-leading underwriting family’s nationwide operations.
Entrepreneurial opportunities in financial technology (“fintech”) compelled Jeff to leave the title insurance industry for a time. He became Chief Operating Officer of an early stage fintech company that offered specialized software-as-a-services (SaaS) for commodities options traders. Under his leadership, the company was transformed into a dominant player in its space, growing several-fold, achieving sustained profitability and ultimately being acquired by an industry giant.
Jeff returned to the title insurance industry as Chief Financial Officer of one of the largest national title insurance agencies, specializing in large, commercial real estate transactions, which Jeff left to start a consulting firm, providing advisory services to title insurance underwriters, title agents, real estate services companies and the fintech industry.
Jeff earned his Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree in finance and accounting from the University of Rochester’s Simon School of Business and a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Rochester. He has served on the American Land Title Associations’ Board of Governors in the role of Treasurer.
