Group Director of self-named bailiffs company, Andrew Wilson & Co has been appointed the new Chairman of the High Court Enforcement Officers Association (HCEOA). Andrew Wilson takes the helm following a unanimous vote held by fellow Board Members at the Association’s AGM in May.

Andrew (pictured) has been given the job of Chairman in recognition of his service on the HCEOA Board of Directors since 2004 and for his contribution to the Association as Vice Chairman for the last six years. The announcement comes as Andrew Wilson & Co has just completed its most successful year in its 16-year history.

As Chairman of the HCEOA, Andrew’s primary role will be to develop more work for High Court Enforcement Officers by encouraging the Government to remove the artificial barriers preventing High Court Enforcement Officers from enforcing Consumer Credit Act judgments, something that Andrew Wilson & Co customers have been pressing for, for a long time.

Andrew said: “I am looking forward to a busy few years, helping to drive the profession of High Court Enforcement Officers forward and expanding our market in line with the demands of our customers.”

Having worked in civil enforcement for many years, Andrew brings a wealth of experience to his new role. Andrew helped develop the business of Andrew Wilson & Co in 2000, as part of the Cerberus Group of companies, in anticipation of the industry’s shift from Sheriffs to High Court Enforcement Officers in 2004. Prior to this, he was a solicitor in private practice and Under Sheriff of Lancashire.

Amir Ali, Chairman of the Civil Court Users Association, said: “This is a welcome and long overdue appointment and I wish Andrew well in his new role. Andrew has been a leader in his field for many years and I am sure he will make a positive impact on the future of High Court Enforcement.”
