Jamie Barker, Ray Reece and Cheri Swanson attend the Dallas 100 finalist reception at the SMU Cox Caruth Institute on October 12th. Final award rankings are to be announced next month. Congratulations to our entire FNTI team for this incredible recognition. We also thank all of our independent agents for their continued support.
I recently heard John Maxwell speak about, “What you do TODAY matters.” What we do matters every day in all aspects of life. Recently, I have started writing a short note every morning to my son Will, taping it to the mirror in his bathroom. I do this to pass along something positive to start his day. The message always begins with “TODAY” followed by an inspirational message such as:
TODAY—Winning makes you a Champion but having a heart for others makes you a Hero. Do both TODAY and be someone’s SUPER HERO!
In light of recent of hurricanes and tragic events, I am certain the first responders and helpful citizens woke up on those days not knowing their TODAY was going to significantly impact others. I am also certain they live their lives with an understanding of others first and how to make their TODAY matter. We need more of that in our country, and I want this Motivational Monday to encourage all who read this to remember—What you do today matters and to always be prepared and strive to be a Super Hero for someone TODAY!
First National Title Insurance Company (FNTI) qualified for the second year in a row as one of the Dallas Business Journal’s “Middle Market 50—Fastest Growing DFW Companies.” Middle market is defined as having revenues between $25 million and $750 million. Over the past four years, our company has had revenues of $26 million, $36 million, $49 million, and $78 million. With consistent revenue growth rates like these, our team improved our ranking over last year and is now ranked No. 17 among the companies that qualified.
Our recent inclusion in the Inc. 5000 2017 Fastest Growing Private Companies as an honoree was also based on our company’s history of incredible growth. We appreciate the recognition and enjoy the competition. I am honored by this company recognition and realize that the only reason we qualified for these awards is due to your support and the trust you place in our team—every day.
But awards don’t define the company. Our people and our agents define who we are and how we conduct our business. FNTI has always been focused on providing services to the independent agents. Our staff strives to earn your business each day, and we believe that you do business with those you know, like, and trust.
The first six months of 2017 have been very exciting. Our agent network continues to grow along with our share of your business. Through your efforts and the continued support from our team, we may find ourselves ranked even higher next year.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to qualify and reach No. 17 this year in the Dallas Business Journal “Middle Market 50” and establish ourselves among private companies in America with a solid ranking of 1961 in the Inc. 5000 2017 Fastest Growing Private Companies list.
