Since his appointment in 2008 as chief executive officer of the American Land Title Association (ALTA), the Washington, D.C.-based national trade association for the title and real estate settlement services industry, Kurt has revitalized ALTA’s membership and advocacy in the nation’s capital. Membership for the 100-year-old association is now at a record-high of more than 3,700. Also under Kurt’s leadership, the Title Industry Political Action Committee (TIPAC) has increased its size by more than 70 percent, and over 2,000 people have been recruited into active grassroots advocacy. ALTA has also increased its coordination with state land title associations and is actively engaged with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).
