Dean Kirchen, Senior Vice President of WFG’s Default Title Services, is one of 50 industry leaders whom HousingWire has honored as 2020 Insiders. According to Editor-in-Chief Sarah Wheeler, these carefully selected individuals “demonstrate expertise in areas that are critical to the success of the companies they work for” and “have been invaluable to the smooth functioning of the entire housing ecosystem.”
According to a HousingWire press release, “These 50 winners are the ‘go-to’ team members in their companies and represent a wide range of occupations within the housing industry, from lending and real estate to investments and fintech. The Insiders are the professionals their companies turn to with their most important or challenging projects, and their contributions and hard work lead to superior results.”
HousingWire recognized Kirchen for his contribution to WFG’s impressive growth. He joined then two-year-old Williston Financial Group in 2012, brought on by company founder and CEO Patrick Stone to build an experienced default services group that would create a brand known for excellence in customer experience and client satisfaction. Kirchen already had built a reputation for his own unique style of integrating marketing and client relationships with running operations. That fit perfectly with WFG’s goal of combining the nuances of title insurance with foreclosure expertise for the Western U.S.
“This year’s Insiders represent the unsung heroes of their companies,” HousingWire Magazine Editor Kelsey Ramírez said of the fifth annual selection. “This year, the need for the services of these 50 winners has been greater than ever, and they rose to the challenge.”
The fifty 2020 Insiders were selected by HousingWire’s editorial board based on “their vital and dynamic contributions to their companies.”
