PEXA UK names new non-executive directors

PEXA UK has announced the addition of two independent non-executive directors to its board.

Nicky Heathcote (pictured right), chair of the conveyancing association and former chief of staff at the HM Land Registry, alongside Tim Everest (pictured left), a prominent banking executive known for his leadership role in the transformation of Pay.UK, are set to bring their industry knowledge to the company.

With a career spanning 30 years in the property sector, Heathcote currently holds the position of chair at both the Conveyancing Association and the PCCB Compliance Committee. Her extensive governance experience is supported by her previous high-level roles in the public sector, including her tenure as chief of staff at HM Land Registry and her work at the Gambling Commission.

Everest boasts 30 years of experience as a transformational executive and non-executive director, with a focus on scaling businesses within complex and highly regulated environments. His career highlights include leading significant digital payment transformation projects across notable organisations such as Pay.UK, CHAPS, the Bank of England, Lloyds Banking Group, Deutsche Bank, and Cheque & Credit Co.

Heathcote and Everest are scheduled to join the PEXA UK Board in April.

PEXA UK chair John Hooper and chief executive Joe Pepper, CEO have both expressed their enthusiasm about the new appointments, emphasising the pivotal role the directors are expected to play in PEXA’s mission to streamline the property and financial conveyancing market in the UK.

Glenn King, managing director and chief executive at PEXA Group, also shared his excitement about the addition of Heathcote and Everest to the UK board.

“We are thrilled to have Nicky and Tim join the PEXA UK Board and look forward to their collective insights and deep expertise as they support our momentum and growth in the UK,” King said.
