The American Land Title Association has reported that its top executive, James Maher, is retiring after 23 years of service to the title industry."It has been my privilege to serve as executive vice president, and I look forward to serving in a consulting capacity," Mr. Maher said. He joined ALTA after working as a Department of Housing and Urban Development attorney, and he was a fierce critic of HUD's 2002 proposal to reform the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act to allow the bundling of title and other settlement services. HUD later withdrew the proposal. ALTA's board of directors has formed a search committee to find a new EVP. The association can be found on the Web at http://www.alta.org.
