Having spent over three decades in the industry, Ron still enjoys teaching and mentoring agents and colleagues.  In fact, he considers this a critical role as Underwriting Counsel for Old Republic Title.  Ron was unemployed when a colleague recommended him to a title insurer who was in need of an instructor for continuing education when insurance CE first became mandatory in the Commonwealth.  It was that opportunity which sparked his career in the title insurance profession. 
“The ability to think creatively in applying general principles and specific guidelines are the essential skills for anyone who is in the profession,” stated Ron.
