Ford appointed director of xit2s Conveyancing Portal

xit2 has announced the promotion of David Ford to the board of the Conveyancing Portal.

The Conveyancing Portal is a fully automated and interfaced database acting as a conduit linking Lenders and conveyancing solicitors. Data is distributed in real time ensuring all parties in the process have synchronised information.

Prior to joining xit2 in April of last year as senior manager, Ford worked for the Bank of Ireland Group for eight years holding a number of positions including product development manager, marketing manager and national account manager for Bank of Ireland Mortgages.

Paul Duckworth, CEO of the xit2 Group, says: “At the September board meeting, we formally invited David to become a director of the Conveyancing Portal in recognition of the enormous contribution he has made in setting up and managing its growth and success.

“Davids wealth of experience in the mortgage market and his wide range of skills will enable him to ensure that xit2s independent provision of technology and systems to support Home Information Pack providers remains marketing leading as we approach the introduction of HIPs. I am delighted that David accepted this offer and his appointment begins with immediate effect.”

Ford adds: “I am honoured by this appointment, which I believe reflects the exceptional technology and the team I work with, not just my individual effort. The progress we have made in creating true connectivity between Estate Agents, Lenders and their preferred Conveyancers or Law Firms, has been outstanding, with many thousands of conveyancing instructions now being distributed through the Conveyancing Portal every month.”
