My Home Move’s Doug Crawford named as Business Leader of the Year at the British Mortgage Awards 2016July 8, 2016
Doug Crawford, CEO of My Home Move, has won the Business Leader: Conveyancer award for the third time in four years, at the British Mortgage Awards 2016. This takes My Home Move’s awards total to 22 awards since January 2013.
The ceremony which was held at the Park Plaza Hotel in London on the 7th July recognised the standout achievements from across the UK mortgage and associated industries in the last twelve months.
Speaking after the event, Doug Crawford said, “I am absolutely delighted to have been honoured with this award for the third time. The British Mortgage Awards represent the very best of those who work within the mortgage sector and associated industries – tough competition and high praise indeed for which I am grateful.
“These last twelve months have presented some real challenges for our industry; from the rise in property prices to the lack of housing stock and pressure caused by the additional stamp duty levy. Despite these challenges, the industry responded with a collective effort to be proud of. The success this award represents is reflective of the hard work of all my colleagues at My Home Move – and so I’d like to extend my thanks and gratitude to them for their commitment and the exceptional conveyancing service they deliver to tens of thousands of home movers a year.”
Doug Crawford joined My Home Move in 2012 and since then has led the company to become the UK’s leading provider of mover conveyancing services. Under his leadership, My Home Move has broken numerous industry records (over 6,000 mover transactions in March 2016), achieved substantial year-on-year growth and revolutionised the customer experience of conveyancing. This is due to Doug’s ethos of putting the client at the heart of the business and consistent investment in innovation.
Alongside this the company recently launched its enhanced eWay service which enables clients to manage their conveyancing case on the move, via a smartphone or tablet. Through the accompanying eWay app, clients are sent push notifications as well as provided with access to support materials, videos, forms and case documents, at the touch of a button – a pioneering, industry first.
