“The acquisition of Continental Title Company represents Shaddock National Holding’s first retail presence in the states of Kansas and Missouri,” said Mike Rubin, Shaddock National president. “Continental Title will serve as a critical Midwest brand for our national expansion strategy…Our hope is that this partnership will only serve to expand that excellence into new and exciting markets.”

McBride said the deal provides Continental with platform to expand.

We firmly believe that in Shaddock, we have a partner that understands our business and supports and encourages our plans for the future.”
