TAMPA (June 3, 2013) ― Alpha-Omega Title turned 30 this year making it the oldest of the large, independent title agencies in Tampa. Founded by Gibbs Wilson in 1983, the firm has grown from two employees in a 500 square-foot space to 19 employees with three locations in South Tampa, North Tampa and Brandon.
Along the way, Alpha-Omega Title became the only company in any industry to receive all three awards from the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce. It took the Small Business of the Year award and the inaugural Mayor’s Award for Community Involvement in 2006 and Wilson received the Outstanding Small Business Leader of the Year award in 2008.
The agency’s corporate culture fosters employee retention; some employees have been with Alpha-Omega Title for more than 20 years, one for 26 years. Profit sharing, training, employee-driven “Team Spirit” initiatives, including employee appreciation and family days, and corporate support of employee charities all contribute to morale.
Committed to continuous education and leadership improvement, Alpha-Omega Title’s CEO Gibbs Wilson has been involved in several organizations over the years, including the CEO Council of Tampa Bay, TEC (now Vistage), Strategic Coach, and C-12. To nurture leadership skills and accountability, C-12 members function as quasi-board members for each other and hold each other accountable for fulfilling their own personal and business goals.

Services include residential and commercial title searches and closings, mortgage refinance closings, and short sale transactions.
