Executives from mortgage insurance firms, title insurance companies and other closing service providers have been busy positioning themselves at new firms that are eager to serve the mortgage industry. More than a dozen appointments have recently been made at mortgage service providers.

Lender Processing Services Inc. said Thursday that Tom Schilling was named executive vice president and chief financial officer. The Jacksonville, Fla-based service provider said Schilling brings with him more than 20 years experience as a public company CFO and chief operating officer at USA Mobility, Cincinnati Bell's Broadwing and MCI.

Schilling will be responsible for all aspects of the company's finances and select internal operations and report to Jeff Carbiener, LPS president and chief executive officer. Schilling replaces Francis Chan, who will stay on in a consultative position and assist with special projects.

The new president of ICBA Mortgage Solutions is Scott Hall, the Denver, Colo.-based company said Friday. Hall is a former community banker and former senior vice president who headed the secondary market lending program. Previously, Hall was assistant VP of The Bank of Cherry Creek (now America National Bank) and a mortgage banker at Premiere Mortgage Group LLC.

ICBA also said it named Elizabeth Deal executive VP. Deal, formerly a SVP, has been with ICBA for almost 20 years.

Former First American Corp. executive Landon V. Taylor has joined Dorado Corp. as SVP, business development. Taylor's resume reportedly includes more than a decade in various senior-level roles for First American, including president of the Strategic Markets Division for First American Title Insurance Co. at the time of his departure.

The San Mateo, Calif.-based mortgage technology firm, a Mortgage Daily advertiser, last month said Taylor will oversee strategic alliances and joint venture partnerships worldwide.

Fidelity National Financial Inc. announced last month that George Scanlon will assume the position of CEO. He is replacing Alan Stinson, who would like to continue to serve as a senior executive officer, but in a "less rigorous capacity than his role as CEO," according to a company press release.

Scanlon joined the Jacksonville-based company last summer for FNF's subsidiary Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. as EVP of finance.

The new general manager of Fleishman-Hillard Chicago is Maxine Winer, the company said last month. Replacing the recently retired Cynthia Hardie, Winer will report to Susan Veidt, president of the firm's central U.S. region. Winer previously held positions with Edelman, Manning Selvage & Lee, PNC Mortgage Corp. and The Financial Relations Board.

Scott R. Anderson and Joseph S. Berry Jr. were promoted as co-heads of Depository Investment Banking at KBW Inc. in New York. Anderson has reportedly 20 years industry experience with the last 10 spent as KBW managing director. He was managing director at First Union Securities before that.

Berry was most recently the managing director after beginning his career KBW's Equity Research group 15 years ago.

The pair will report to Peter J. Wirth, global head of investment banking, who was also recently named to the board of directors for Keefe, Bruyette & Woods Limited in London, the Oct. 6 announcement said.

Bruce L. Koepfgen has joined the MGIC Investment Corp.'s board of directors, according to an Oct. 21 announcement. Currently an investor, he served on the executive committee of Allianz Global Investors and as CEO of AGI's Oppenheimer Capital unit. Koepfgen provided consultative business services after a 23-year career at Salomon Brothers, Inc. where he held senior management position in fixed income sales.

A newly created position at Radian Guaranty Inc. is being filled by Brien J. McMahon, according to an announcement last month. The new chief franchise officer will lead Philadelphia, Pa.-based Radian's sales and customer experience strategy efforts, and report to Teresa Bryce, president of the mortgage insurance business.

McMahon has 24 years financial service experience including national sales at PHH Mortgage. He also worked for real estate companies Coldwell Banker, Century 21, ERA, Better Home and Gardens and Sotheby's.

Radian also said account manager, Brooke Keitel has been elected to serve a two-year term as a board director of the Oregon Association of Mortgage Professionals.

The Terranova Group has hired Richard Parvey as director of land development, the company said in an Oct. 14 announcement. The Greenville, S.C.-based asset management and disposition service said Parvey brings with him more than 20 years land acquisition and development experience including from his own company, The Parvey Companies.

Parvey will be responsible for business development in surrogate developer activities, client portfolio analysis and direct acquisition, the company said.

Sandor Samuels was recently named president and CEO of Bet Tzedek Legal Services, the Los Angeles-based company reports. He has reportedly spent 30 years in the financial services industry, having served the last 18 as a senior executive and chief legal officer for Countrywide Home Loans, and then Bank of America after it acquired Countrywide.

Samuels assumes leadership of the non-profit law firm after sitting on the company board of directors since 1994, including a two-year term as its chair.
