Chief Product Officer and Vice President, Regulatory Affairs
Mary Schuster is the Chief Product Officer and EVP of Regulatory Affairs for RamQuest, Inc. While not a technologist by trade or education, her insatiable search for how to make things better led her on a path; starting at the closing table where she conducted thousands of closings, continuing through roles in agency general management, until finally she found her home in the software and technology sector of the title and settlement business.
Mary says she is ashamedly not nerdy enough to hold a candle to her technical peers at RamQuest, but her real world experience combined with a knack for translating business needs into technology, and translating technology’s abilities into real world benefits - combine to help her teach, train, advocate and innovate for those she serves.
She is a popular national speaker and is proud of her service on the American Land Title Association’s TRID Implementation Task Force. She was appointed as an original member of ALTA’s RESPA Implementation Task Force and also serves on ALTA’s Government Affairs and Research committees.
