Searchflow200Conveyancing Search Provider, SearchFlow, which is part of dmgi::land&property, has boosted its senior management team further with the latest appointment of Colin Breavington as Operations Director.

Colin has a broad commercial background gained from high profile roles in both sales and operational transformation and management. At SearchFlow, Colin will be overseeing the business and operational changes that are scheduled for next year.

Colin began his career at The Digital Property Group, which united the leading property brands; findaproperty.com, primelocation.com and Globrix.com. Rising through the ranks very quickly, undertaking a senior strategic role, Colin was highly successful in substantially increasing the Group’s customer base and profits.

After The Digital Property Group merged with Zoopla, Colin was responsible for transitioning sales operations and the data support function into Zoopla’s operational teams.

At his most recent role as head of global sales at Fotolia, which was acquired by Adobe Systems for $800m at the end of 2014, Colin was the driving force behind significant double digit year-on-year growth.

He helped deliver a world class customer experience by introducing a direct sales channel and improving operations. After the acquisition, Colin was again responsible for transitioning sales operations.

He was also COO at Under One Roof, an umbrella organisation for estate agency suppliers, where he had overall responsibility for managing the business and finances.

With Colin at the helm, it became the fastest growing estate agency software and media supplier in the UK.

Greg Bryce, managing director of SearchFlow, comments: “Colin is a formidable all-rounder with an astute business mind. His highly successful track record speaks for itself. We are delighted he is on board to help steer the organisation into an exciting future of change and innovation.”

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
