Stewart Information Services Corporation has acquired a majority interest in Great American Title Company (GATCO). GATCO is a provider of title and escrow services in the Greater Houston Metropolitan area, with the ability to operate in 38 counties across Texas. The acquisition creates additional scale in the area, Stewart said in a release.

“By adding GATCO to the Stewart family of companies, we join forces with one of the area’s most respected brands and further strengthen our presence throughout the Greater Houston area,” said Steve Lessack, Stewart group president. “GATCO’s long history of providing high-quality customer service and their established local relationships are a testament to the teams they’ve built. This acquisition further enhances Stewart’s ability to provide best-in-class products and services throughout the area, and emphasizes our commitment to investing in key markets across the country.”

“GATCO is invested in each of our customer’s success, and as we’ve gotten to know Stewart’s leadership, we have seen the same commitment to customer excellence,” said Ronnie Matthews, chairman and principal of GATCO. “This acquisition only strengthens our core philosophy of making the transaction process seamless and efficient. With the ability to leverage Stewart’s financial strength and an expanded set of tools, we can continue to improve the transaction experience. We are excited about the opportunities joining the Stewart family presents for our employees, leadership team and customers.”
