Title Turnover Involves Kendall and Curry

We’ve heard another round of leadership changes went into effect last month at Springdale-based Waco Title Co.

Longtime company man Matt Kendall has accepted a job with Arvest Mortgage Co. in Lowell as senior mortgage operations manager.

Bentonville-based Arvest Bank Group Inc. owns Waco, so Kendall is still in the family, so to speak. He was promoted to Waco’s top spot in April 2011 to take the place of Blake Hanby, who left to open his own title business in Northwest Arkansas.

Patrick Curry, with Waco since 2005 and previously the chief operating officer, has been promoted to replace Kendall. He’ll be responsible for about 125 employees and the production in 16 branch locations throughout Arkansas and southwest Missouri.

Joe Robinson, who has more than 20 years experience in Oklahoma at American Eagle Title Insurance Co., has accepted an offer to become Waco’s new COO.
