The Conveyancing Association (CA) has announced the appointment of Lloyd Davies, Managing Director of Convey Law and long-standing member of the CA Management Committee, as its Director of Operations.
The announcement was made at the CA’s Annual General Meeting which took place in London on 30th April.
As Director of Operations, Mr Davies will be responsible for the management of CA initiatives – and in particular, driving forward a number of the CA’s ongoing Leasehold and Industry Engagement Campaigns.
The AGM in addition saw the re-election of Eddie Goldsmith (Goldsmith Williams) as Chairman and David Hodgson (Blacks Direct) as Treasurer. Geoff Hall (Gordon Brown Law Firm), Mark Slade (Fidler and Pepper) and Rob Gurney (My Home Move) were also all re-elected to the CA Board of Directors.
Since its launch, the CA has developed a significant presence in the sector and has expanded its membership of like-minded firms to 55 – with CA members carry out over two thirds (67%) of all UK mortgaging work and over 15% of all UK property transactions.
The AGM event was kindly sponsored by Future Climate Info – specialists in environmental desktop reports, explicitly designed to help speed up the conveyancing process, who made a presentation to CA delegates following the AGM.
Eddie Goldsmith, Chairman of the Conveyancing Association, said: “We are delighted that Lloyd has accepted the role of CA Director of Operations. This is the first time we have appointed anyone to this newly created position – a real indication of just how far the CA has come in the five years of its existence. This is a really positive development for the Association and we look forward to continuing our work with Lloyd who, I have every confidence, will be a key driver of the CA’s growth and success going forwards.”
Lloyd Davies, Director of Operations of the Conveyancing Association, said: “I’m delighted to have been asked to take up this opportunity. As Operations Director I want to help the CA fulfill its potential, especially in raising conveyancing industry standards. This is something I am totally committed to on a professional level. The CA is the only Association of its kind and it is a great honour to be working so closely with so many of the industry’s very best conveyancers. I very much look forward to playing my part in ensuring that the CA continues to be a strong voice for the conveyancing industry over the coming years.”
