Glenn Asher joined Kensington Vanguard in 2003 prior to the merger in 2008 with Vanguard Title in NYC. The Co-CEO’s Brian Cooper and Jarret Fein were two of the fastest growing agencies with different business models and geographical scope. KV was a nationally licensed company with a focus on large commercial transactions and lender-based refinance transactions. Vanguard, a NY licensed firm with a focus on attorney-based purchase transactions as well as commercial. Glenn Asher brought a concentration in national lender-based volume, closing hundreds of deals monthly with national mortgage banks while Brian Cooper and a few select sales people began to disrupt the commercial market, establishing themselves as a force in the title insurance industry. Most title agencies did commercial or residential, not both, setting the stage for an aggressive presence during a time of unrest in the Real Estate and Financial Industries.
