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.”

Make your mark: Personal branding for barristers

stand out from the crowd

A recent Legal Futures article reported that the number complaints involving use of social media by barristers is increasing. The BSB have warned that “as social media and the internet become more prominent in our daily lives, there is an increasing need for barristers to be very careful about what they post whether in their professional or personal lives”. While inappropriate use of social media isn’t anything new, what struck me when reading that paragraph is that, for barristers, I would argue, there shouldn’t be a defining line between the personal and professional. As a barrister, you are your own USP, your personal brand is everything.
