Conveyancing and property services group Simplify has appointed Nicky Bloor-West as head of business development.

Bloor-West brings over 18 years’ industry experience to the role, including 12 years as area director at rightmove, regional sales manager for OnTheMarket and more recently as head of partnership development at Lifetime Legal.

She will be responsible for building relationships with estate agents to help Simplify build on its market-leading position in the UK.

Dev Malle, chief business development officer at Simplify, said: ‘Nicky is a fabulous addition to the Simplify business development team and shows our intent as we continue to grow and support our introducer partners.

“She has a great track record of working closely with estate agent partners and building lasting relationships and we have already had many in the industry welcoming her addition to our team.

“Recruiting high-quality individuals, like Nicky, is a strategic focus that reinforces and demonstrates our commitment to offer the very best service to our partners.

“Having brought two of the industry powerhouses together in March last year, we have developed a best in market conveyancing proposition so the time is right to allow more agents to access it.’

Bloor-West added: ‘I’m really excited to have joined Simplify at such an exciting time. This is a fantastic opportunity and I am looking forward to being part of a first class offering to estate agents, while taking advantage of the market-leading technology.

“I look forward to meeting new and existing customers over the coming weeks.’
