Sr. National Account Manager

First American Title Insurance Company
Fighter Country Partnership is proud to feature Cheri Brady, an alumni member of the Honorary Commanders Program and currently a Life member of the Blue Blazer Squadron of Fighter Country Partnership. Ms. Brady was assigned to the 310th Fighter Squadron at Luke Air Force Base from 2009 to 2011 and is a highly engaged community leader.
Cheri Brady is Vice President and Sr. National Account Manager for the National Commercial Services division of First American Title Insurance Company, an international provider of title, escrow and information related products and services and longest established Arizona title insurance underwriter.
Cheri began her title and escrow career in 1977 in Boise, ID. In 1987 she moved to San Diego, CA to accept the position of VP, Regional Director for HomeFed Bank’s Escrow Department where she managed the activities of a region with 6 branches. In March of 1993, Cheri moved to Phoenix, AZ and joined the First American family where she has worked in both the National Commercial Services and Home Builder divisions.
Cheri serves as the founding Director for the Real Estate Investment Advisory Council (REIAC) from 2000 to present and currently serves as Membership Chair. Cheri completed her second term on the Board of Valley Partnership from 2002 to 2009, and chaired its State Legislative Committee where she followed legislation that affects our real estate community. She served as a Director for The National Association of Industrial and Office Properties of Arizona (NAIOP) from 1994 to 2008 and was appointed to the National NAIOP State and Local subcommittee that focused on development issues nationwide.
During her board term with Valley Partnership in 2007 Cheri was invited by Mr. Rusty Mitchell, Director of the Community Initiatives Team, Luke AFB, to participate in the Luke AFB Civic Leaders Tour with Brigadier General Tom Jones and the 161st Air Refueling Wing Commander, Colonel Bill Anderson.
“We witnessed two separate mid-flight F-16 refueling missions and toured Edwards AFB, Calif., and the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo. I was hooked and could not stop talking about it. I was then sponsored to participate as an Honorary Commander of the 310th Fighter Squadron from 2009 to 2011. “After my two-year term was complete, I joined the Alpha Class of the Blue Blazer Squadron, Fighter Country Partnership in January 2013.”
“My experience as an Honorary Commander and now as a Blue Blazer rank among the most memorable and enjoyable of my life. I am in awe of the selfless dedication and patriotism of the men and women of Luke AFB and recognize what a special privilege it is to serve them in a small way.
Being an active Blue Blazer has afforded me the honor to participate in several activities including Haboob Havoc, Red Flag at Nellis AFB, Nev., observing bombing and strafing at the Barry M. Goldwater Range, Change of Command ceremonies and Roll Call. I participate in the annual golf tournament, Wingman’s Day, the Fiesta Bowl Parade, Fry’s Courageous Hearts phone bank, Air Force Balls and speed mentoring. But the thrill of a lifetime was my flight in an F-16! My call sign name is “Popper” and you will have to ask “AJAX” how I earned it.”
Ron Sites, Executive Director and President of Fighter Country Partnership said:
“We have many amazing individuals who spend the time to be present and support FCP and Luke AFB. By the smile I always see on Cheri’s face, I would argue there isn’t another person who enjoys being involved with FCP and Luke more than she.”
