Stewart Title Promotes Emily Kain to Chief Human Resources Officer

HOUSTON (February 4, 2020) – Stewart Information Services Corporation announced today that Emily Kain, Senior Human Resources Director, is being promoted to Chief Human Resources Officer and will be responsible for overseeing the people side of the business, focusing on attracting, retaining and engaging associates worldwide.

Kain joined Stewart Title in 2014 as manager of associate onboarding and immediately made a positive impact on the organization by re-engineering the hiring and onboarding processes, the employee referral program and, most recently, the Stewart Celebrates recognition program.

“Emily has a proven track record of leading and understanding the complex employee experience, which gives me the utmost confidence that she will continue to excel and be a key member of my Executive Leadership Team going forward,” said Fred Eppinger, Chief Executive Officer. “I also want to take a moment to thank Ann Manal for her dedicated service as CHRO. She has been a tremendous help to me as I transitioned into my role as CEO, and we wish her great success in her new role.”

Prior to joining Stewart, Emily held positions in recruiting, staffing and employee development at Deloitte, National Oilwell Varco and BP America in Houston and at IBM in Dubai, UAE.

“Stewart’s success hinges on creating a culture and environment where associates can grow, develop and win together,” said Kain. “I’m excited to work with Fred and the leaders at Stewart to build a solid foundation and strategy that focuses on our most important assets: our people. By recruiting high-quality talent, and empowering and training our associates, the people at Stewart will be the driving force behind our success in becoming the Premier Title Services Company.”
