Thomas A. Klemens has been elected as vice president-chief financial officer of both companies.

He was elected to the board of directors of First American Title Insurance Co. in 1971, and serves on the boards of several First American subsidiaries and affiliates. He is the past chairman of the accounting committees of the American Land Title Association and the California Land Title Association. Prior to his association with First American, Derloshon was with the auditing firm of Price Waterhouse for seven years. A certified public accountant since 1955, he is a member of the California Society and American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
 Derloshon has been active in many charitable and philanthropic Orange County organizations, including the American Diabetes Association, Casa Santa Maria, a housing project for the elderly, and the Finance Committee of the Diocese of Orange.
