“We want to thank Mike for his years of service and the integral role he has played in the company’s long-term success,” said Matt Morris, CEO of Stewart. “Mike has provided leadership and guidance to many of us during his nearly 25 years with Stewart, which will be greatly missed. He always led with integrity and professionalism, which we will continue to carry on in our leadership roles.”

“We would like to pay tribute to him. His influence and impact have forever changed our company – and we will continue to benefit, as Mike will remain on the Stewart Title Guaranty Company Board of Directors,” Morris continues.

Putting that same proven leadership to work, Skalka will relocate to Virginia to join Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems (MERS ®) as their General Counsel. MERS operates an electronic registry of mortgage loan servicing rights and ownership, and is presently addressing the challenging issues associated with foreclosures and mortgage record holding, areas in which Skalka’s background and knowledge is uniquely suited.

Skalka joined Stewart in 1988 as the founding president of our New York subsidiary, Stewart Title Insurance Company (STIC). Shortly thereafter, in the early 1990s, he helped establish our operations in the United Kingdom, and then relocated from New York to Houston in 1993 to serve as executive vice president and general counsel until 2005.
