Title insurance giant taps former PGA golfer as new VP

Kensington Vanguard National Land Services (KV) has announced the appointment of Joe Affrunti to lead the company’s business development efforts in Arizona as vice president of business development. KV, which was recently acquired by Truist Insurance Holdings, entered the Arizona market in 2019 with the acquisition of GRS Title Services.

Affrunti is a former professional golfer on the PGA and Korn Ferry tours. Following his golf career, he established himself as a respected executive in the Phoenix title insurance sector.

“We could not be more excited to have Joe join our team in Phoenix,” said Zach Sams, executive vice president of KV’s Lone Star and AZ divisions. “He brings a great reputation, deep relationships, and the competitive spirit of a former professional athlete.”
