Millar & Bryce strengthens technical team with two senior appointments

Millar & Bryce, the conveyancing and land search specialist, continues to strengthen its team with its two latest senior technical appointments.

Eric Willis and Carole Russell both join from Registers of Scotland (RoS) and bring a combined 69 years’ worth of experience.

Willis joins the firm as Project Manager having previously held a number of senior roles at RoS.  Within his new role he will be working with Millar & Bryce’s new systems platform and taking this forward into its important implementation and roll-out phase.

This follows on from the active role he has played in recent years in implementing the digital transformation agenda with RoS.

Russell joins the firm as Technical Advisor in plans and associated mapping related services. She is a hugely experienced specialist within this area having previously chaired the joint RICS, RoS, Law Society and Ordnance Survey mapping forum to draft guidelines for implementation of the 2012 Act.

With her wealth of knowledge, Russell will provide support in terms of training, technical advice and guidance both internally and with clients as needed.

The news comes on the back of the company’s latest addition John King, who recently joined the team as a Principal Consultant from RoS. King brings over 30 years of legal, policy and practical experience, across all aspects of land and property registration in Scotland.

Richard Hepburn, Managing Director at Millar & Bryce, said: “Both these appointments, and indeed that of John King’s in recent months are hugely significant, and are a real statement of intent as we continue to build on our recent successes and strengthen our services.

“The technical expertise these appointments bring complements the deep experience already within our business and means we have unparalleled capability in supporting our clients with their challenges under both the 1979 and 2012 Acts.  They join at a very exciting time for the company as we continue to develop our portfolio and introduce new value-adding products and services to the market”.
