Lisa Steele is the Chief Operating Officer for Mother Lode Holding Company. She is a 30-year industry veteran with a background in sales, marketing, escrow, operations, and leadership. She currently oversees daily operations alongside business partners Randy Bradley and Darrick Blatnick. She is a member of the Board of Governors for the American Land Title Association (ALTA).

Lisa's passion is helping others. Hanging in her office you’ll find and old handwritten post-it note scribbled with a simple daily reminder: “Leadership means serving the greater good.” She is a culture creator and has learned the importance of building a workplace that people enjoy, where they feel safe and appreciated, and where they care for one another and their customers. Leo French, founder of MLHC, started with this simple goal and Lisa is proud to carry it on.

When not traveling to one of the branch operations, Lisa can be found at the lake, camping with family and spending time outdoors. She also serves as the CEO of the Strong As Steele Cancer Foundation, where she is proud to honor her late daughter, Taylor, by providing financial support to many cancer patients and organizations.

When Darrick Blatnick joined Mother Lode Holding Company’s Executive Team, he brought with him years of experience in the title and escrow business—all of it as a member of the Placer Title Company team. Darrick started his title and escrow career at Placer Title Company in 1996 as a member of their customer service division and quickly transitioned into sales and business development. In 2004, Darrick was appointed Vice President of Placer’s Sacramento County Division. In 2013 he transitioned to the Mother Lode Holding Company Executive Team and in 2021 was elevated to President of Mother Lode Holding Company. His love for people, his competitive drive and his intuitive nature all served him well and helped him excel in each new position.

Mr. Blatnick was born and raised in the Sacramento area and currently resides in Rocklin with his wife and daughters. His interests outside of the home and office include golf and baseball. His passion for baseball has lead him to assist in coaching several local high school programs. When asked what he believes has made him successful with Placer Title Company, he said, “I love the people I work with. I'm a good listener and I relate to the needs of my co-workers and customers and respond in any way I can to support their efforts to succeed.”
Our executives come with a combined total of almost 150 years of industry experience. Together, we listen, we care, we respond.
