ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL, December 03, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Mary-Sue Pastorello Solley with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Ms. Solley celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
A title insurance and settlement services executive for the past 11 years, Ms. Solley has been best known as the managing partner at Affinity Title Services since 2007, the same year the company was first founded. Taking on her new role when the market had plummeted, it was a risky decision for Ms. Solley. However, the company not only survived the market crash, but expanded, growing from one location to eight. Headquartered in Skokie, IL, the firm provides expert real estate title insurance services and state-of-the-art closing facilities for attorneys, realtors, lenders, builders and consumers in both Illinois and Indiana. In 2016 Affinity Title was acquired by Elmdale Partners. Elmdale was recently named to Crain's Fast 50 Companies for 2018. Ms. Solley remains with Affinity Title under the new ownership as SVP.
In the title business since 1992, Ms. Solley formerly worked as an accountant for Burton's Shoes, Inc., in Illinois for four years beginning in 1976. She later spent seven years as an assistant controller, controller, chief financial officer and director for Sound Video Unlimited, Inc., between 1980 and 1987. Employed with several other companies since then, she eventually earned her first opportunity to serve as a closing officer with Attorneys Title Guaranty Fund in Chicago, IL. She then became a senior account executive with Republic Title Company in Rolling Meadows, IL, before becoming managing partner at her current firm.
A longstanding member of the American Land Title Association and the Title Action Network, Ms. Solley is also an active committee and board member of the Illinois Land Title Association and a lifetime member of the Award District 25 Parent Teacher Organization in Arlington Heights, IL. She has notably been included in the 15th through 17th editions of Who's Who of American Women and the first edition of Who's Who of Emerging Leaders of America for her work.
Married to Richard James Solley since 1977, Ms. Solley studied at Eastern Illinois University and Roosevelt University. She has since become the proud mother of three children and grandmother of one grandchild. In her free time, she is involved with the St. Nectarios Greek Orthodox Church in Palatine, IL. She also loves staying active by going horseback riding, boating and swimming, and she enjoys playing the piano and going to the theater.
In recognition of outstanding contributions to her profession and the Marquis Who's Who community, Mary-Sue Pastorello Solley has been featured on the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement website. Please visit www.ltachievers.com for more information about this honor.
