Stewart Title® Renames Its Commercial Division

HOUSTON (April 1, 2014) – Stewart announced today it has changed the name of its commercial services division from Stewart National Title Services (NTS) to Stewart Title Commercial Services. The rename, which takes effect immediately, represents a unified focus on commercial services across the Stewart organization, provides a platform for the partnerships with our commercial customers, which are at the foundation of our services, and highlights Stewart’s global reach and footprint.

“The name change to Stewart Title Commercial Services coincides with the company’s overall realignment to enhance Stewart’s identity within the industry and the markets in which we do business. It provides a clear, direct description of exactly what we do and the customers we are dedicated to serving,” said Matt Morris, chief executive officer of Stewart Information Services Corp.
