This week’s Title Report update included a special preview and details on the 2016 National Settlement Services Summit, specifically the Breakout Room Session “Business NOT as Usual” which features Florida Agency Network CEO, Aaron M. Davis and Orange Leaf Consulting CEO, Cynthia McGovern.
The National Settlement Services Summit offers a destination for industry leaders to come together for “unrivaled networking and learning.” This year’s theme is Knowledge In Action and will offer educational breakout sessions with keynote speakers who are highly regarded within the Settlement Services Industry. One of which will be our very own Aaron M. Davis, CEO/President of Florida Agency Network.
Davis will be speaking in the Breakout Session “Business NOT As Usual” on Tuesday, June 7 from 9:40 am – 10:40 am. Davis, along side Cynthia McGovern, Founder of Orange Leaf Consulting, will discuss life in a post-TRID world and how to embrace the changes to elevate business results.
A few years ago, Aaron M. Davis, Florida Agency Network CEO and former Plant City Rotary Club President, had a goal of equipping each patrol car in the Plant City Police Department with Automated External Defibrillators (AED) in an effort to assist in medical emergencies. This goal was completed last year, and the effort is paying off.
Last week, the PC Rotary Club was informed that one of the AEDs installed in a patrol car aided in saving the life of a 46 year-old man who had gone into cardiac arrest. According to Captain Rodriguez of Plant City Fire Rescue, the PCPD Officers were able to provide “exceptional care to the patient utilizing their AED and hands on cardiopulmonary resuscitation.” The PCPD Officers on the scene provided the patient with shocks in order to stabilize him until the Plant City Fire Rescue were able to get to the scene.
Since delivering the first units in 2013, the Rotary has donated a total of 47 units, which have been used at least 5 times now.
“I am so thankful to everyone who helped the Rotary achieve this goal. I hope the AED units continue to assist more PCPD Officers in saving the lives of those in this great community,” said Davis.

When it comes to the upcoming CFPB changes, Aaron M. Davis, Florida Agency Network’s founder and CEO, is the man to speak with.

Tampa, Fla.-based Florida Agency Network introduced Mike LaRosa as its new chief operating officer.
“There have certainly been some milestones in our company and network that have been game changing,” said Aaron Davis, chief executive officer of the Florida Agency Network and its multiple brands, which include Hillsborough Title, Trident Title, Paramount Title, Tampa Bay Title, Cornerstone Title, HomePlus Title, Uptown Title, Bella Title, Performance Title & Escrow and Progressive Title Solutions. “Having the caliber of person and operator like Mike LaRosa join us was never something we could have imagined years ago. Mike brings 16 years of industry experience and the operational expertise of running one of the largest title insurance underwriters to the Florida Agency Network,”
In 1999, LaRosa began his title insurance career as associate counsel at First American Title’s divisional headquarters in Tallahassee. By 2000, he moved to Tampa to work with the partnership division, where he was promoted to vice president and counsel. He spent six years in the that role establishing affiliated business arrangement title agencies with mortgage, builder/developer and real estate professionals throughout the Southeast.
LaRosa was named Tampa Bay agency manager in 2007. His territory eventually expanded to include the southwest region of Florida. Ultimately, he was promoted to Florida state agency manager where he has spent the past three and a half years.
