Paul Yurashevich
President

Hi, My name is Paul Yurashevich and I have over a decade of experience in operational scale-up, finance and mergers & acquisitions in high-growth businesses. I focus on growth initiatives at Foote Title Group. I am licensed in Maryland, Virginia, DC and North Carolina. 
Prior to taking over management of Foote Title Group, I have headed operations at a VC-funded fintech company based in Silicon Valley. Prior to that, I had worked as a Vice President at PIMCO in high-yield corporate credit, including working directly with the largest title insurance companies. Earlier in my career, I had worked in mergers & acquisitions in the technology sector.
I am a CFA charter holder and earned my MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where I was a Palmer Scholar. I also hold a BS in Economics with concentrations in Operations & Information Management and Finance from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.​
I married my college sweetheart and now my main hobby is entertaining my 5 year old daughter.

 

Penelope Wesely
Vice President for Washington D.C. Metro Area

Hi, I am Penelope Wesely, Vice President of the Washington, D.C. Metro Area.  I grew up in the District and am a proud native Washingtonian. I stayed in the area to attend Georgetown University and Georgetown University Law Center. I have a broad range of experience in the real estate industry, from running the oldest title company in Fredericksburg, Virginia to working for years in a Washington, D.C. law firm to selling properties as a licensed realtor (although I am no longer active).

Client satisfaction is my focus and I work hard to make sure we are exceeding expectations. I love to build new business relationships and to strengthen those already in place. My door is always open, no matter the topic. I love what I do.

I have four fantastic children. My oldest attends George Mason University. I have another child in high school and my two youngest are in middle school.  To add to the mix, I have three dogs and one cat (I am an animal rescuer at heart). I try to make time for reading and yoga.
