Propertymark has announced its full leadership line-up for 2020/2021 which this year have not been elected ‘due to Covid’, although the organisation hasn’t clarified publicly why the pandemic stopped a postal or electronic vote.
Liana Loporto (left) from London has been appointed President Elect for NAEA. She recently started up her own eponymous agency.
Stephen McCarron will become Vice President.
He works in Northern Ireland and has run his own agency Donnybrook and has worked in the industry for 30 years. They join Kirsty Finney, who was appointed earlier this year as President.
David Votta, who runs his own agency in Kent and is already an ARLA regional representative, has been named Vice President for ARLA, working alongside Maxine Fothergill, President Elect. Angela Davey is the current ARLA President.
“These agents are all experienced property experts working in different markets across the UK, their input on behalf of members is crucial in directing Propertymark’s focus,” Tim Balcon, the recently-appointed CEO of Propertymark.
“I look forward to working with them to ensure that we understand members needs and address the issues they face.”
Propertymark has been tight lipped in recent months about its operations, so far being reluctant to comment on why chairman Christopher Hamer left the organisations in September or why David Cox, who was widely tipped to become CEO of the whole organisation after Mark Hayward announced his retirement in October, abruptly exited from his Chief Executive role at ARLA. Cox has subsequently joined Rightmove as its industry spokesperson.
