Iron Title Names Ana Villela-Murillo SVP, Expands Operations and Leadership Team

NEW YORK--()--Iron Title Insurance Agency, which launched in February 2023 with a capital investment from Zimmer Financial Services Group, has named industry veteran Ana Villela-Murillo as its Senior Vice President of Operations and member of the company’s executive team. With over two decades of industry experience, Murillo will oversee Iron Title’s expansion into Arizona and other states, as well as join the existing executive team on broader initiatives. She joins the company from Stewart Title, where she was Group Vice President.

Ana brings an invaluable skill set and a commitment to empowering employees to execute closings in the smoothest, least stressful way possible,” said Judd D. Hoffman, CEO of Iron Title. “Her excellent reputation and expertise in building out cross-functional teams will enable us to attract the right talent to scale operations strategically, purposefully, and efficiently.”

At Stewart Title and, previously, at First American Title, Murillo helped to expand the companies’ market share and geographic footprints.

Iron Title has also hired Angie Yoo as Senior Vice President of Underwriting and Compliance. A seasoned commercial underwriter with national agency operational experience in commercial and post-closing divisions, including with Boston National Title and Chicago Title, Yoo has closed over $1 billion in national commercial transactions, including multi-site portfolios, retail developments, luxury hotels, solar farms, and a $70M assemblage.

Further, Iron Title has expanded its operations geographically, with new storefront locations opening in Tempe, Arizona; Winter Park, Florida; Melbourne, Florida; and Canadian County, Oklahoma. The company’s licensing footprint has increased to fourteen states, with twenty more slated for later this year. Through strategic partnerships and other expansion efforts, the organization plans a fifty-state solution for its services.

As we bring on Ana, Angie, and other team members, we are building an inclusive, high-performance culture,” said Hoffman. “Our growing executive team will be integral to helping shape the company in its start-up phase and lay the groundwork for building a responsive, nimble enterprise that fills a gap in the title space.”

Its parent company, Zimmer Financial Services Group, has holdings that include Ategrity Specialty Insurance Company, an insurer in the excess and surplus (E&S) market; Sequentis Reinsurance; Carrick Specialty Holdings, which provides reinsurance and run-off management solutions; and Zimmer Partners, LP, a research-driven, multibillion dollar investment adviser.
