The two executives will report to South Texas Regional Director and Houston Division President Monique Modica Vasek and support WFG’s growing presence in South Texas, adding the Austin and Houston Divisions to its current Dallas / Fort Worth Divisions and San Antonio.
Youens will manage escrow teams in Houston, San Antonio and Austin.
“Debbie will share her expertise in Texas real estate transactions and her deep understanding of escrow, title and real estate rules and regulations,” Vasek said in a statement. “She’s a ‘Wonder Woman’ in the title business. Decades of industry knowledge and experience will further set WFG apart when it comes to providing the highest level of professional expertise and exceptional customer service to our clients.
Youens, licensed real estate agent since 1989, has a well-established career in real estate, title insurance, business relocation and branch management, most recently as sales manager for two major real estate brokerages in Houston: Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty and John Daugherty, real estate agents. She was also Vice President of Sales at Heritage Texas Properties in Cypress, Texas, and Regional Director at GMAC Global Relocation Services in Houston.
Harris will oversee WFG’s sales efforts in Houston, San Antonio and Austin.
“Gregg is a seasoned and proven sales veteran focused on investing in dedicated, highly skilled and efficient business executives,” said Vasek. “By using proven sales strategies and only the best tools and resources, its teams will be able to deliver differentiating value to our customers and exceed customer expectations.”
Harris began his career 20 years ago as a district manager and business training for ADP, then moved to sales and management leadership roles at two national title insurance companies in Houston.
“WFG is a fast growing company looking to bring its values and technology to Texas,” said Harris. “Being at WFG gives me the opportunity to work with a forward-looking, growth-oriented company that shares my own people-centered values. I now have the tools to partner with our clients and help them grow their business as we work together. “
