(Palm Harbor, FL) July XX, 2015 – Nationwide Title Clearing (NTC), the leading post-closing services provider for the nation’s largest financial institutions, investors and servicers, is proud to announce that Erika Lance, an 11-year employee of NTC (Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc.), will be featured in MReport Magazine’s Women in Housing issue this August as one of the industry’s leading female executives.
“I am very proud to be part of this group of exemplary executives,” Lance said. “It’s good that this leading trade publication is making it clear that we truly have some incredible women working in our industry today. It has been my pleasure to work with many great executives over the course of my career, both men and women. I feel fortunate to work in an industry that makes it possible for the best executives to rise to the top, regardless of their gender.”
As Chief Information Officer at the leading post-closing services provider for the residential mortgage industry, Lance holds a position that has typically been held in most industries by male executives. Only 20% of CIO jobs at Fortune 250 companies were held by women in 2012, even though 57% percent of occupations in the workforce are held by women.
Prior to her promotion, Lance served in other management positions at NTC, allowing her to gain the experience necessary to take over her current role in the company. Lance has worked in Human Resources, the legal department, client relations and overall organization within NTC, giving her a thorough understanding of both operational and client needs.
“Erika’s deep knowledge of our industry, coupled with her passionate drive for perfection in protecting our nation’s land records, makes her a perfect executive for this list,” said NTC CEO John Hillman. “The industry’s future and standards are being shaped by many of the programs Erika has generated right here at NTC. Her leadership has resulted in the development of training and technology products that are used regularly by some of the nation’s largest lenders and servicers.”
In addition to joining the ranks of women in a male dominated field, Lance is heavily involved in Corporate Social Responsibility with several local organizations and events, including the Say No to Drugs Holiday Classic (as a Race Volunteer and Registration Leader In Charge), the Clearwater Community Volunteers, Relay for Life (as a team captain), the Center for Future Business Leaders of American at Palm Harbor University High School (first as a committee member, now as Chairman), the Hurricane Glam Run (a breast cancer run), and HUGS Florida (working with local children with brain issues).
Lance will join exemplary female executives from the U.S. Congress, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and a number of other leading industry firms in the August issue, which MReport’s editors are dedicating, in part, to a celebration of the achievements made by women working in the housing industry.
