Happy Retirement to Jim Hensley

Congratulations Jim Hensley!

Jim leaves an impressive legacy that spans more than four decades in our industry.

It is with admiration and gratitude for a job well done that we announce the retirement of Jim Hensley, our Midwest regional agency manager. Jim has been transitioning toward retirement for several months, and his last day with Alliant National will be May 29th.

As he enters this new phase, Jim leaves an impressive legacy that spans more than four decades in our industry. When Jim joined our organization in 2013, his deep operations experience on both the agent and underwriter sides made him a crucial hire for Alliant National. We’ve seen tremendous success in the Midwest thanks to his efforts.

But we didn’t just gain an amazing title professional when we hired Jim Hensley; many of us gained a mentor and friend. When you talk to Jim, you always know you’re speaking with someone who lives a life of service to others. His faith, and his love for his family, his country and the people in our industry comes shining through.

In these months as Jim neared retirement, he worked tirelessly to ensure that Regional Manager Manoj Purohit and his team are well positioned to meet the needs of our agents moving forward. I am personally grateful for the time Jim has invested in our company and in teaching me about commitment to this industry.

The future is bright, but like us, we know many of you have come to rely on Jim, his straightforward honesty, and his uncommon ability to find the right words, even in difficult times. We all will miss him.  

Feel free to join us in wishing Jim and his family a happy retirement!

Alliant National Title Insurance Co. recalibrates regional operations in Midwest and West Regions, expands into five new states

The company’s West Region will become the Central West Region, while the Midwest Region will become the Great Lakes Region and include five expansion states

LONGMONT, Colo. (Oct. 28, 2019) – Alliant National Title Insurance Co. announced today that it is expanding into five states and will recalibrate its West and Midwest regions to better serve agents.

The shift comes as veteran title professional Jim Hensley, who has achieved legendary status in the Midwest over his more than 40 years in the industry, steps back into a part-time role with Alliant National. His protégés will head up the two new regions.

“We are grateful to Jim for his hard work and his investment in the future of our company,” said President and CEO David Sinclair. “Not only has he shown up each day in service to our agents, he has also served as a mentor to the next generation of title professionals at Alliant National. As Jim finishes his leg of the race, I have the utmost confidence his successors will pick up the baton and continue to move us forward.”

The West Region will become the Central West Region. Grant Zehner, Alliant National’s current Western Region Agency Representative, has been named the Regional Agency Manager. His team will serve agents in Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Missouri.

Grant was chosen as a 2016 Young Title Person of the Year by the Missouri Land Title Association and joined Alliant National in the same year. Previously he ran TruHome Title Solutions, a multi-state title company based in Kansas City, and was an agent of Alliant National.

“This is an exciting time for our company, and I’m excited to take on this new challenge,” Zehner said. “I feel like I have some big shoes to fill, and I intend to deliver the same personalized service to our agents that has helped us grow so successfully under Jim’s leadership.”

The Midwest Region will become the Great Lakes Region. The region includes Minnesota and Wisconsin as well as expansion states Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennslyvania and New Jersey.  Manoj Purohit, Vice President and Alliant National’s current Great Lakes Agency Manager, has been named Senior Vice President and Great Lakes Regional Manager.

Manoj came to Alliant National in 2018 and has been associated with the mortgage, title and title technology industries for over 30 years. His previous tenure includes working for two of the four major underwriters as well as a regional underwriter.  He also served as president and chief executive officer of a settlement services company in New Jersey.  Manoj is also a veteran of the armed forces having served in the New Jersey Army National Guard for 9 years as a reconnaisance scout.

“With Jim’s previous hard work and leadership, these new regions are both poised for much success,” Purohit said. “I look forward to carrying his legacy forward of serving our agents and welcome the opportunity to expand Alliant’s footprint to the additonal states with our ‘Agents First’ philosophy.”

“Over the past several years it has been my pleasure to serve the independent agents in the Midwest with care and dedication to the entire ‘Agents First’ philosophy,” Hensley said. “I feel very confident that the agents currently with Alliant National Title as well as all of those who will desire to become a part of this unique organization are in very capable hands.”
