Chad Wiedenhofer

Chad Wiedenhofer

Chad leads the Higher Education and National University teams.
Chad loves having the opportunity to play a small role in supporting campus projects. To him, nothing is more satisfying than visiting a campus after a project is completed and observing the impact it has on students. His wife is a teacher, and with three small children, education has a prominent place in their lives.
He started his career at First American in 2005 in Operations, working closely with Education clients and managing the administrative aspects of the relationship. In 2006, he was the recipient of the company’s Chairman’s Award.
