Jeffrey Tischler has joined Old Republic Title, headquartered in Tampa, Fla., as senior vice president, technology solutions.
Tischler currently has leadership responsibilities for Pavaso and RamQuest, which are part of Old Republic Title Tech Companies, Old Republic Title says in a release.
Tischler began his career working for one of the “Big Four” accounting firms, where he became a certified public accountant. 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 compelled Tischler 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.
Tischler 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. He then left to start a consulting firm, providing advisory services to title insurance underwriters, title agents, real estate services companies and the fintech industry.
In his new role with Old Republic Title, Tischler 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.
