Granite Escrow & Settlement Services has one of the most extensive corporate teams, designed to aid and assist our branches and escrow officers at the local level. With over 200 years of combined management experience, our corporate team allows our escrow officers to focus solely on their escrow transactions and their clients. We have a designated trust accounting department and all funds are processed in and out of corporate on a separate network to protect our clients’ money. Below is a list of our corporate team:
Mr. Cohen is a graduate of the University of Arizona (1985) with a B.S. in Psychology and Business Administration. He worked for 2 years as Director of Expansion for the SAE National Fraternity & Foundation before joining the Xerox Corporation in their corporate management program. In 1988 Mr. Cohen worked for a year as a Title Representative for North American Title Company. He was then recruited to work for Heritage Escrow Company, and opened their 4th location in Newport Beach. Within a short time he became a part of their corporate management team, first as Sales Manager and then as their Senior Vice President. Mr. Cohen was an essential part of the company's growth, helping it expand from 4 locations to 26 locations throughout the state of California, making it the state's largest independently owned escrow company.
In 2007, the company was sold to a title company and Cohen left in January 2009 to establish a truly independent escrow company, Granite Escrow & Settlement Services. Through earning the respect and loyalty of his former associates, many followed Cohen and joined the Granite Escrow team, becoming integral in the company's current growth and success. Cohen's philosophy is to treat the employees like they are his clients and as a result, the clients will be well taken care of. Integrity and ethics are the core values he believes make a company strong. As a result, Granite Escrow & Settlement Services has grown to eight locations spanning across all of Southern California and is one of the largest independent escrow companies in California.
