DENVER—Williams Title Guaranty and Escrow Agency, Ltd., a premier, Colorado-based title and escrow services agency offering sale and mortgage services for residential and commercial real estate, is pleased to announce that   Michelle McCollum, Williams Title’s Chief Operating Officer, is the recipient of the 2011 Denver Business Journal 40 Under 40 Award. Michelle took the title on March 11, 2011 and rose above and beyond the other 197 nominees, surpassing required stellar criteria in: business leadership, recognition of accomplishments and community involvement.

            “I am surprised, honored and humbled,” says Michelle. “The other nominees all represent extraordinary business and community lives and it is truly an honor to be chosen from this caliber of Denver business professionals.”

            Some of Michelle’s long list of community involvement includes the Crescent View Academy, Hope Co-op Online Learning Academy, Meals on Wheels and the Salvation Army. Michelle also sits on several boards and works tirelessly to secure scholarship funds for children who otherwise could not secure higher education.

            “Michelle is critical to the success of Williams Title and definitely to our ability to expand into three Colorado locations,” says Williams Title President, Betsy Williams. “She is amazing in her ability to be in several places at once — and doing extraordinary work at the same time.”

             Each of the three 40 Under 40 criterion held equal importance in the judging, so those who have found success in their profession were not selected if they have not devoted a significant amount of time serving their community. Winners of the annual 40 Under 40 Award are chosen strictly by the judges’ numbers. Read more about Michelle in the Denver Business Journal here: A video of all nominees is available here:
