SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (March 24, 2014) – Stewart Title Company announced today that its subsidiary San Juan Abstract Company Inc. will now be operating under the name Stewart Title Puerto Rico, Inc.  Maritza Brimeyer Quezada has been appointed vice president and general manager and will oversee the company’s day-to-day operations, as well as be responsible for developing the business.

“While San Juan Abstract has been subsidiaries of Stewart Title since 2010, the name change to Stewart Title Puerto Rico, Inc. officially recognizes the operation as part of the Stewart family of companies and the higher level of professional service and products synonymous with that name,” said Maritza Brimeyer Quezada.

“With Maritza’s years of experience and ability to drive transactions to their close, we felt it was a natural progression for her to move into the vice president and general manager role,” said Steve Lessack, group president of international operations. “She will lead a team of experienced and knowledgeable underwriting, operations and business development associates to fully support the needs of our valued clients in this market.”
