After all, Sharon Horstkamp has served as Vice President, Secretary and General Counsel.
Putting that same proven leadership to work, Skalka will relocate to Virginia to join Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (MERS®) as their General Counsel. MERS operates an electronic registry of mortgage loan servicing rights and ownership, and is presently addressing the challenging issues associated with foreclosures and mortgage record holding, areas in which Skalka’s background and knowledge is uniquely suited.
Skalka joined Stewart in 1988 as the founding president of our New York subsidiary, Stewart Title Insurance Company (STIC). Shortly thereafter, in the early 1990s, he helped establish our operations in the United Kingdom, and then relocated from New York to Houston in 1993 to serve as executive vice president and general counsel until 2005.
