Dan Salmons, chief executive at Coadjute, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Maria and Rob to the Coadjute Advisory Board.

“Between them, they bring a wealth of experience in the mortgage and conveyancing industries respectively and share our passion for innovating to connect the property market.

“Coadjute’s network is set to become a National Grid for the market, and Maria and Rob’s expertise will be invaluable to help us set priorities that best address the needs of the property professionals they know so well.”

Maria Harris added: “The mortgage industry has been on the precipice of true digital transformation over the last few years, but we need to take that final leap of faith.

“Coadjute not only gives us the technology to make this a reality, but it also facilitates the step change in industry culture and mindset, we need to collaborate effectively.

“I’m so excited about what we’re about to set in motion and the difference it will make to us and our customers.”

Rob Hailstone said: “Various attempts have been made over the last decade or two to really try to improve the way property is bought and sold.

“Unfortunately, very of those attempts few have made any real headway. Coadjute, with its well thought through uniqueness, could be the fillip that the process needs.

“I am delighted to have been invited to be part of the Coadjute journey”.
