Australian e-conveyancing platform wins international praise
Electronic conveyancing start-up Property Exchange Australia (PEXA) took home seven awards at the 14th Annual International Business Awards held in Barcelona over the weekend.

Called the Stevies, the awards honour business, executives, and employees around the world for innovation and significant achievements in their industries.

Marcus Price, PEXA CEO, said he was proud to accept the awards not only for the platform, but also on behalf of the Australian land registries, banks, legal and conveyancing firms, and peak bodies.

Founded in 2010, PEXA was established to fulfil the Council of Australian Governments’ goal of creating a national e-conveyancing platform for the Australian property registry. PEXA is considered a disruptor in Australia’s $7.2tn residential property market.

PEXA was given awards in the following categories:

Golden Stevie
  • Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year (up to 2,500 employees)
  • Company of the Year (Legal industry – medium-size)
  • Best New Product or Service of the Year (Software ̶ real estate or construction management solution)
  • Innovator of the Year (Marcus Price)
  • Executive of the Year – Legal Industry (Marcus Price)
Silver Stevie
  • Fastest-Growing Company of the Year (Asia, Australia, New Zealand)
  • Technical Innovation of the Year (organisations with up to 1,000 employees)
MinterEllison recently completed its first property transfer on PEXA. It was recently revealed that most Queensland property lawyers want a clear update on the state’s e-conveyancing framework.

The awards were presented during a gala event in Barcelona, Spain. Winners, which were chosen from nearly 4,000 nominations, include Goldman Sachs, Accenture, DHL Express, and Meltwater.
