HOUSTON (March 24, 2014)—Stewart Information Services Corporation announced today the appointment of Nat Otis as director of investor relations. Dr. Ted C. Jones will remain Stewart’s senior vice president - chief economist. Otis will also continue as Stewart’s senior vice president – financial planning and strategic analysis, with both reporting to Allen Berryman, chief financial officer.
“With this change, we are taking better advantage of the unique and synergistic skills Nat and Ted bring to the company,” said Matt Morris, CEO of Stewart. “Nat and Ted have been working collaboratively with our shareholders since Nat joined the company in October of 2012. His Wall Street experience as a title industry analyst, as well as in-depth knowledge of our company and the financial services sector will be integral to strengthening our relationship with the investment community. Also, having Nat step into this position allows Ted to focus more on his role as chief economist, while continuing as an important spokesman for Stewart through his travels across the globe addressing industry and customer groups.”
Jones will continue his econometric models and analyses for the title industry.
“Ted was Stewart’s first director of investor relations and built a strong foundation for the future with the shareholders, analysts and the NYSE.
