    11/18/2019 3:11:43 PM
    MIAMI – November 19, 2019 – North American Title Insurance Co. (NATIC) has promoted Michele Ponce, formerly NATIC’s agency relationship manager, to the position of state agency manager, Florida, with a focus on South Florida. Angie Haddon has joined the company as state agency manager, Florida, with an emphasis on the Tampa region. The two will work closely with Geoff Harris, assistant vice president, regional agency manager, targeting new business growth and overseeing agency operations in their respective territories.
     
    “The individual attention we give to every agent on every level of their business has always been paramount at NATIC,” said Harris. “While deepening our footprint in key Florida markets, this type of loyalty and steadfast commitment requires a growth in resources. Promoting Michele to state agency manager and adding Angie’s title operations expertise offers an opportunity to build strong relationships with new agents and add two more dependable resources for those agents who are already part of our robust network.”
     
    Ponce served four years as a business consultant for North American Title Company prior to joining NATIC. A sales professional for 34 years, she also spent four years at the Miami Herald Media Company as a media consultant, selling online and print advertising, and four years at Lennar Homes as a new home consultant. In 2010, she taught a marketing principles course at Miami Dade Community College and worked as a business account executive at Windstream Communications. She is fluent in English and Spanish and is a licensed real estate agent and title agent and commissioned as a notary. Ponce graduated with a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Miami and earned her bachelor’s degree in marketing from Florida Atlantic University. She serves on the leadership committee of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, as an ambassador in the Women’s Council of Realtors and on the board of the Mortgage Bankers Association.
     
    “Michele’s charisma, enthusiasm and passion for the job and her clients is contagious. Her positive energy is felt by all those around her. These characteristics, added to her experience of bringing business into a title company for a good portion of her career, will enable her to be successful in supporting client growth,” Harris said.
     
    “With deep roots in title and real estate, I am uniquely situated to help agents attract new business. I am that conduit between our title agents and the real estate industry in the Miami market, and will utilize my broad connections to cultivate new, productive and mutually rewarding relationships for our agents,” Ponce said.
     
    Haddon comes to NATIC after serving as chief of operations for a prominent title agency in Tampa. Spending 10 years with the agency, she managed staff for seven locations, which involved recruitment, training, sales, marketing, client relations, and negotiating and closing deals. In addition, she helped build many facets of the company, including establishing and maintaining a consistent corporate culture and image throughout all offices, product lines, promotional materials and events. She is a licensed Florida real estate agent and title agent and commissioned as a notary.
     
    “Given her background and extensive understanding of how an agency can and should run, Angie will have a notable and immediate impact as the go-to consultant for agents, whether they want to grow, contract, streamline or staff their agencies. She’s done all of that and looks forward to helping others do the same,” Harris said.
     
    “With over a decade of knowledge gleaned in title operations, all of my agents will greatly benefit from our partnership. I am ready and excited to draw from my day-to-day title experiences and connections to help those that want to take their companies to the next level,” Haddon said.
     
    Ponce and Haddon will also partner alongside attorney Jessica Hew, who has recently become the state agency manager for NATIC’s commercial division in Florida.
