Leading estate agency and property services provider Connells Group announces the appointment of Jeremy Davy as Conveyancing Services Director.
Jeremy brings with him over 25 years’ experience and knowledge of the legal and conveyancing industry. He succeeds Roger Wilson who recently announced his semi-retirement, with effect from April 2019, following 13 years’ service with Connells Group. During his tenure, Roger quadrupled the Group’s conveyancing income and was responsible for many new innovations, including Search Pledge, the online customer portal and search ordering within branch.
Jeremy joins from AIM-listed legal and professional services group Gordon Dadds, where he was Managing Partner of the firm’s Cardiff and Bristol operations and Head of Real Estate amongst other roles. Jeremy is well-known within the conveyancing industry, having previously been a member of the management team that established the volume conveyancing operation at national law firm Shoosmiths, as well as having sat on numerous committees at prominent industry bodies including RICS, The Law Society and HM Land Registry. Since leaving Shoosmiths in 2006, Jeremy has been Head of Legal at a large multi-national company and has run his own consultancy practice advising clients in the property industry, such as Rightmove, PropTech suppliers and law firms.
In his new role, Jeremy will have full responsibility for all the conveyancing propositions offered throughout Connells Group, which now handles over 44,000 completions a year.
Jeremy says: “It is a very exciting time to take on this strategic role within Connells Group’s successful conveyancing operation. Connells Group has a deserved reputation as market leading, and I look forward to engaging with the network, developing the team and both maintaining and driving the success of this fundamental part of the business.”
Commenting on the news, David Livesey, Connells Group CEO, said: “Jeremy’s track record and experience in the profession are second to none and we are thrilled to have him on board. His knowledge and innovation, coupled with his long-standing relationship with Connells Group, will be a huge advantage to us, our customers and the team he will be leading as the business grows.
“We thank Roger for his outstanding contribution to the business, he has been a driving force behind the development of our market-leading conveyancing proposition and will be greatly missed, although I’m pleased to say that he will still be working for us part time in the background,” David concludes.
