Why work with Aaron?

“When Notarize set out to smooth the path to widespread digital closings in Florida, I was introduced to Aaron as someone equally excited for change and innovation in the closing process. Aaron has also proven to be an eager and early adopter on ground-breaking technologies designed not only to accelerate and optimize real estate processes, but to further empower consumers and employees alike. He was, in fact, an enthusiastic volunteer as a Beta user for Notarize’s digital closing product, and remains one of the most creative and effective users of that platform throughout the nation. After leaving Notarize, I started my fund/venture studio focused around building the next generation of transformative technology companies in real estate and financial services. I thought of Aaron as a natural fit as an investor, partner and advisor to guide Gemini to re-imagine the way real estate is designed, experienced, managed and transacted.”

MEETKyle McDowell

For nearly three decades, Kyle McDowell amassed an impressive track record of delivering great business results while leading tens of thousands of employees at massive organizations including United Health Group, CVS Health, and Bank of America. Despite his personal success and track record of developing great leaders, McDowell grew tired of the toxic behavior he so commonly witnessed behind-the-curtain at some of the biggest companies in America. Armed with an MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management, he turned his back on the big paycheck and golden handcuffs to launch Kyle McDowell Inc., a global leadership development and cultural transformation firm committed to cultivating authentic and courageous leaders. McDowell’s first book, Begin With WE – 10 Principles for Building and Sustaining a Culture of Excellence is a Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller and an Amazon #1 bestseller in nine categories. McDowell is a highly respected and sought-after speaker, coach and expert on the matter of corporate culture and leadership development.

Aaron began his career growing a single-office title agency (Hillsborough Title) into FAN, one of the largest full-service settlement services firms in the nation. FAN today is built upon multiple title agency brands (Hillsborough Title, Paramount Title, Tampa Bay Title, Smart Title, Strategic Title, Affinity Title Services, Gator Title, Total Title Solutions, Patriot Title, and International Title Partners). All told, FAN employs nearly 300 people throughout the state of Florida and has a footprint of 30 offices.

Premier Data Services (PDS) is a SOC 2 Type 2-examined technology services provider specializing in managed services, cloud hosting, and network security. PDS has quickly evolved into one of the settlement services industry’s go-to sources for IT support.

Network Transaction Solutions (NTS) offers back-office, ancillary support, and settlement solutions, such as title search products, lien search, post-closing services, data processing, a national mobile settlement/notary/RON service provider, mobile home transfer division, and a short sale/foreclosure service department.

Aaron is a frequent speaker at title and mortgage industry conferences and seminars, and a frequent contributing author or expert source to numerous trade publications on issues pertinent to title and mortgage executives. He is a graduate of the University of Florida (BS/BA in Finance) and an alumnus of the prestigious Harvard Business School’s three-year Owner/President Management leadership program.
