2015 Business of the Year

It is our pleasure to name Title Guaranty Company of Lewis County the
2015 United Way of Lewis County Business of the Year! 

Title Guaranty's motto is "Growing Lewis County One Family at a Time".  Because of their commitment to service and community, they are very proud and honored to be selected as this year's award recipient.

In 1958, a group of local bankers and business leaders joined together with a common vision to form a corporation dedicated to quality customer service.  They sold shares of stock to other business leaders and hired a manager to build and run the company – today known as Title Guaranty Company of Lewis County. The photographing, sorting, and indexing of all county records into a geographic system took approximately two years to complete.  In 1959, Title Guaranty opened its doors for business.

Presently, there are 19 employees under the supervision of Manager, Meri Hamre, who has been with the company since 1993.  Today the Board of Directors consists of Robert Thompson Sr, Del Ames, Mike Alexander, Robert Thompson Jr, Elizabeth Thompson Lagerberg, Debbie French, and Meri Hamre. Title Guaranty continues today with a mission of providing high quality customer service.  For the last 56 years, they have worked to maintain their geographic research system in order to provide the service their customers have come to appreciate and rely upon.

The staff of Title Guaranty is committed to excellence in service to their customers and their community. They support numerous community events and local charities in keeping with their mission. 

In providing extraordinary community support, Title Guaranty has continually supported United Way of Lewis County, consistently pledging over $4,000 through personal contributions, which are matched every year dollar-for-dollar by the company. Above and beyond workplace giving, Title Guaranty invests in United Way of Lewis County through corporate giving; supporting major fundraising events throughout the year and advocating for United Way whenever possible. Their community support doesn’t stop there. Title Guaranty has been a generous donor to the Centralia College Foundation, Providence Centralia Hospital, Centralia College Corbet Theater, the Boys and Girls Club of Chehalis, and the Chehalis Pool Project, just to name a few. 

It’s an incredible honor to recognize Title Guaranty as United Way of Lewis County’s 2015 Business of the Year. The compassionate employees at Title Guaranty truly embrace what it means to LIVE UNITED and give back to our community in countless ways.

Congratulations to Title Guaranty!!!
