Friday 18th November 2016.

It is with extreme pride and pleasure that I can now announce that , yesterday, I was officially elected and appointed as Chairman-elect of IPSA, the national trade body for independent search companies.

This is a huge honour for me,and comes after 29 years service, firstly as Local Land Charges Manager at a City Council for 9, a searches manager for a national search company for a further 9 and then 2 years self employed before founding HantsWight (now HW) in 2007.

I would like to thank all the other search companies who, without any canvassing at all from me, voted unanimously for my appointment.

I see this is an achievement not just for me but also my company, as it reflects the high regard we are held in across the nation. If others perception of HW was not an excellent one, they would not have voted as they did and voiced their support so enthusiastically and with great kindness.

I am really looking forward to starting my new role of Chairman at the end of January 2017 and getting stuck in to the challenges ahead, while appreciating how this news will further enhance the already high profile of HW Conveyancing Searches. As a client you are now re assured even further that we are a nationally well respected firm and now have a seat at the very highest tables.

I thank you all for your support over the years and look forward to a fantastic and exciting future.

With great excitement and kindest regards,

Andrew Prismall
