In this new role, Galen will support agency operations in Idaho, Montana, Utah and Wyoming.

In that capacity, he assisted in the evaluation and purchase of title agencies. Galen also served as a County Operations Manager, leading a team that created and promoted new products and services to enhance workflows and agent search products. Galen followed these products to the company’s National Agency Services Division, where he served as the liaison for agent-oriented products provided by the underwriter nationwide.
