Paul Chapman joins Countrywide surveying team

Chapman will be responsible for operational efficiency of the group’s surveying workforce whilst also using his experience of the UK mortgage lending industry to assist with the development of new products and services for Countrywide’s client base.

He most recently headed up Colleys surveyors within Lloyds Banking Group and held various senior management roles in many different parts of Lloyd’s businesses including business development, mortgage regulation, retail executive and more recently, commercial development in surveying and valuation services.

Paul Creffield, corporate operations director at Countrywide, said: “Paul brings a wealth of experience to this new role after more than 15 years in the property industry and will be using his expertise to strengthen our frontline business.

“I’m keen to ensure that we continue to build on the fantastic progress we’ve made in recent years to explore new ventures and opportunities, and Paul will play an important role as part of our management team to drive the business forward.”

Chapman said: “With my lender background, I have had the experience of working alongside many companies in the sector and I have always respected Countrywide for being innovative, dynamic, and forward-thinking. I am thrilled to be joining Countrywide and seeing how I can develop new growth opportunities and build upon the excellent service proposition they offer clients.”
