    “As a second-generation title professional, Shawn’s small business experience, as well as his time as an industry vendor working with independent agents, will allow him to bring fresh perspectives to the agents he will be working with in the Illinois region,” said Rich Griffin, NATIC vice president, national sales manager. “In addition, Shawn is engaging and genuinely interested in assisting agents to put NATIC’s robust resources to work in crafting solutions to challenges they face.”

Later, he served as a sales executive for HiPOINT Technology Services for several years and just prior to joining NATIC, was vice president of sales and marketing – Midwest for RynohLive.
     
    “My long history of working for an independent, family-owned title agency and my familiarity with current technology and tools arm me to help agents optimize their operations and focus on the critical areas that stimulate growth,” Neely said. “I’m impressed with the powerful sense of teamwork and comradery within the NATIC team. I look forward to growing the NATIC agent network and helping independent agents in Illinois flourish.”
