On Wednesday, May 25, Williston Financial Group (WFG) will host its “WFG Insights: Quarterly Economic Outlook Webinar,” scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. CDT. WFG’s quarterly online webinar will feature industry analysis and insights from WFG Founder and Executive Chairman Patrick F. Stone and Economist and Forbes contributor Dr. Bill Conerly, Ph.D., followed by an interactive Q&A session.
WFG’s online Q&A sessions began in mid-2020 as a way for Stone to maintain his company’s commitment to “communicate, collaborate and co-exist” with title agents and clients during the pandemic. Conerly and Stone will each offer opening statements for the first half hour, before working through a series of questions submitted in advance by registered attendees.
“Our quarterly economic outlook series has become a popular and, I think, impactful national news forum,” said Stone, who founded WFG, the Portland-based parent company of WFG National Title Insurance Company, in 2010.
Conerly holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Duke University and over 30 years of experience helping businesses adapt to changing economic conditions.
“Bill and I bring many years of experience, both as business leaders and analysts, in various areas of the housing industry and the US economy,” Stone added. “The response from real estate, mortgage and securities professionals has been overwhelmingly positive, with appreciation for our efforts to provide balanced perspectives on the challenges we face.”
Those wishing to submit questions for consideration should do so at the time of registration or email them separately to [email protected] no later than 5:00 p.m. ET on Monday, May 23.
Stone’s career in real estate and related services includes C-level positions at three public companies and directorships on two Fortune 500 boards. His leadership positions include nine years as Chairman and COO of the nation’s largest title insurance company, chairman and co-CEO of a software company, and CEO of a real estate data and information company. He was also vice president of Metrocities Mortgage and president of The Stone Group, a tenant-represented brokerage firm based in Austin, Texas.
