As group president of Agency Services at Stewart Title, Tara Smith is continuously proving why she’s a valued contributor at Stewart. During Smith’s eight-year tenure with Stewart, she has served as vice president, agency financial director and executive vice president before her most recent promotion to group president in 2019. Smith oversees Stewart’s independent title agency network of Trusted Providers and all products and services offered to their agency network. She also oversees Stewart’s Marketing department, which, under her leadership, successfully implemented a complete brand and website refresh in 2020. Smith has also been at the forefront of Stewart’s expansion of technological capabilities over the past year, particularly in the launch of products focused on addressing issues that have long plagued the title industry. One of her most recent successes in this space was introducing a deal with CertifID. She’s currently focused on making significant investments in enhancing Stewart’s underwriter technology solutions to streamline processes for their agents. Outside of her role as group president, Smith serves as an active mentor to the next generation of title professionals.
