Karen C. Morrissey serves as Assistant Vice President and Settlement Officer for Fidelity National Title’s Philadelphia National Commercial Services (NCS) operation. Karen joined the Philadelphia NCS in December, 2014. Previously, she worked for another national underwriter for 21 years handling Pennsylvania residential closings. Karen’s duties include handling commercial closings both locally and nationally, as well as being a part of the commercial sales team.
Throughout my many years in the title business, I have learned that it takes a lot of people to successfully close a transaction – not just the settlement coordinator. Trusting and learning to work with your colleagues as a team is the most important first step in any business but especially in the title insurance industry and I can say that I have been fortunate to have worked with the most dedicated and talented people and I’m lucky even today.
Right out of college, Karen began working in the title business by answering phones and typing commitments and, close to 23 years later, she is still in the business. She is a member of the Pennsylvania Notary Association. Karen graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary English Education.
