Bob Grubb Named Vice-Chairman of Holding Company for Alliant National Title Insurance Co.

Grubb helped grow the company into the nation’s largest independent underwriter that does not compete with agents and will remain on the company’s Board of Directors

LONGMONT, Colo. (Sept. 25, 2019) – Alliant National Title Insurance Co. announced today that Bob Grubb has been named the Vice-Chairman of Presidio ATC Holdco, LLC, and has passed on operational duties as President and CEO of Alliant National. Grubb will continue to be an integral part of the company as a member of the Alliant National Board of Directors and a shareholder.

Bob Grubb

Grubb is a co-founder of the company, which launched in 2005 as a regional underwriter operating in Colorado with a few key agents and first year revenues of $131,000. Today the company underwrites for 537 agents in 24 states, with 86 employees and revenues of $126 million. For nearly 15 years, Grubb has led the company that is now the largest independent underwriter in the nation with no direct operations to compete against its agents.

“Bob’s passion for helping people, and his challenge to employees to really see each other as people, and be genuinely curious about the needs of agents, has created the culture that drives Alliant National’s success,” said Phyllis Mulder, Chief Legal Officer of Alliant National. “The culture Bob created will very much remain at the forefront of who we are and how we do business.”

Alliant National’s board has selected David Sinclair as President. Sinclair came to Alliant National in 2011 and has served as Alliant National’s Chief Operating Officer and Chief Technology Officer where he has been integral to the company’s operational and technological development.

“David and I have worked together for several years to reach this day, and as the company transitions, we will continue to work together, in service to independent agents and our people,” Grubb said. “David is strategic, incredibly smart, and uniquely capable of leading Alliant National into the future.”

Scott Hendrickson, CFO and company co-founder added, “David is the natural choice to lead Alliant National. He understands the needs of our agents and has an eye on technology and the future. He is committed to upholding Bob’s legacy, and we are excited to support David as he helps position Alliant National – and our agents – for even greater success.”

Our favorite free digital real estate marketing tools: Piktochart

Everyone’s heard the adage that a picture is worth a thousand words, but unfortunately not everyone is blessed with the artistic ability to create an eye-catching graphic.

While you could hire a graphic designer to overcome any artistic shortcomings of your own, as a small business owner this may not be a financially feasible option for you. We love infographics around here, and we wanted to start incorporating more of them into our blogging routine. But we were faced with the challenge of limited graphic design resources, which led us to investigate online tools for creating infographics. That’s how we found Piktochart. It’s free to create a Piktochart account, and a free account grants you access to a number of templates, icons, shapes and basically anything you would need to create your own compelling infographics. Once you choose a Piktochart template to start, it’s easy to drag and drop elements into your design. The interface is intuitive, and formatting works similar to a MS Word document – including an CTRL + Z function to undo your mistakes. You can also upload your own images into the Piktochart platform to give your infographics a more personal touch. Once you’ve finished your Piktochart infographic, don’t limit yourself by sharing it just once. Think of how you can share your new content on all your digital marketing platforms.

Social Media

For sites like Linkedin and Facebook, it’s probably best to limit your shares to just one each. But with Twitter, you might consider pulling several take-aways from your infographic and tweeting them out along with your image at various times throughout the day and week. If you have followings on Instagram or Pinterest, where content works best when it’s square in design, you might look for ways to crop your infographic into a series of square posts for greater impact.

Email

You should be maintaining an email database of current and prospective clients, and if you’re not, check out our article on how to harness the power of your email database.

Blog

Use your infographic to illustrate multiple blog posts around your topic. Just be sure to space out your posts so you don’t saturate your blog’s home page with the same image. Do you know about a super cool digital marketing resource and want to share? Let us know in the comments section!
