Dring takes top sales role at eConveyancer

Alan Dring, formerly head of sales at Standard Life Bank, has been appointed sales director at eConveyancer.

eConveyancer is a national network of independent solicitors working from offices across the UK including Northern Ireland. Part of the United Group, it is one of the leading suppliers of internet conveyancing services with a rapidly expanding user base of more than 4,000 users.

Dring, a financial services veteran of 35 years, had previously worked for seven years at SLB but quit in August. He started at eConveyancer on September 5.

Dring says: “When I left SLB I’d had seven years of commuting and I thought a change would be timely.

“eConveyancer shows the direction the mortgage industry is going. Pricing will get tighter and service providers can bring in efficiencies of both service and cost. With the introduction of Home Information Packs there is a massive future in the type of service we offer.”
