WebTitle Agency and partner company Cascade Settlement Agency announced a merger with Customized Lender’s Services (CLS) effective June 18, 2012. This merger preserves the company’s commitment to the Greater Rochester, N.Y., community, with the addition of 10 to 15 new jobs.
CLS has earned a reputation for providing rational solutions to title issues while minimizing closing risks, bringing a wealth of experience and skill to this merger. WebTitle said this combination of skill, expertise, technological capability and strong customer service will best position the company for future growth and expansion to best serve the needs of their client partners.
“This merger brings together two great organizations and is creating a strong platform for future growth. We feel that uniting our strengths will allow us to best serve the needs of our valuable client partners,” said Kevin Whiting, chief operating officer/partner of WebTitle Agency. “We look forward to working with CLS and bringing new jobs to the Rochester workforce.”
“Both of our companies bring a particular set of experience and expertise to the table. Our combined resources will allow us to expand in the future, and provide new and enhanced services for our existing customers,” said David Gutmann, co-chief executive officer and general counsel of Customized Lender’s Services.
