Doug Crawford wins at the British Mortgage Awards 2017
Doug Crawford, CEO of My Home Move, has won the ‘Conveyancer - Business Leader’ at this year’s British Mortgage Awards.
The ceremony, which was held on Thursday 6th July 2017, at the Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge, recognised the stand out achievements in the UK mortgage and associated industries.
Since joining the UK’s leading provider of mover conveyancing services over 5 years ago, Doug has led the business to become the market leader, completing more mover transactions per year than any other conveyancer in the UK.
Speaking after the event, Doug Crawford said, “I’m honoured to be recognised with this award for the fourth time, especially as competition for the category is always tough. The British Mortgage Awards represents the very best across the mortgage industry and the industries that support it.
“The last year has continued to challenge the property market, particularly with the pressures caused by the changes to Stamp Duty in 2016 and continued lack of housing stock across the country. However the property industry remains resilient and, collectively, we are continuing to keep the market moving.”
Since joining My Home Move in 2012, Doug has seen the company achieve year-on-year growth and revolutionised the customer experience of conveyancing through innovations such as the award-winning eWay service. With its recent acquisition of Advantage Property Lawyers, My Home Move is on target to complete Doug’s growth strategy of completing 100,000 cases per year in 2017.
Alongside this, My Home Move has seen the launch of new initiatives in the last 12 months, including voice biometrics, ‘smart’ case allocation and the growth of its National Network Conveyancing teams across the UK.
Continuing, Doug said, “The success of My Home Move cannot be attributed to one person, but everyone that works hard to deliver excellence to all of our clients and introducers. I would like to extend my gratitude to them for their contribution to revolutionising conveyancing and for continuing to shape the future of our industry.”
