FARMINGTON HILLS — Farmington Hills, Mich.-based Attorneys Title Agency (ATA), a full-service title company providing comprehensive services throughout the state of Michigan, announced today that it has acquired the assets of Portage, Mich.-based Pinnacle Title Agency. ATA President William Robinson made the announcement.
The transaction, which closed on December 1, enhances the ATA footprint in a market that has long intrigued the title insurance provider.
“Though we have a significant presence in West Michigan through our affiliate Midstate Title Agency, the Kalamazoo market was yet-untapped prior to this acquisition,” said Robinson. “We feel this region has significant growth potential and partnering with the great team at Pinnacle is a phenomenal entry point.”
Pinnacle was owned and operated by George Amar, a highly respected title insurance professional with more than 35 years of experience in the industry. George and his expert staff will be valuable additions to the ATA team.
Pinnacle Title Agency will operate as an ATA office, supervised by the agency’s Southwest Michigan manager, Terry Pingel.
“George and the Pinnacle team have been providing outstanding customer service in southwest Michigan for more than three decades, which has led to strong customer loyalty and deep industry expertise,” stated Pingel. “As we look to 2012, we’re poised for growth in the Kalamazoo region and a strong team on the ground will be critical to our progress.”
