Rob Gurney

Managing Director

I became Managing Director of Ochresoft in March 2020 and, supported by my amazing team,  I’m responsible for delivering the business strategy for this area of the Landmark Information Group.

I’m a property lawyer by trade, and prior to this position I was Head of Legal at Premier Property Lawyers, the largest conveyancing firm in the UK. I’m passionate about streamlining legal processes and utilising data in order to provide better quality and consistent services to all parties involved in property transactions.

In my spare time, I enjoy adventures, in whatever shape or form they come. I travel whenever the opportunity allows, I want to climb every mountain I encounter and I want to look around every corner just to see what’s there.
