ARLA appoint new MD

ARLA appoint new MD

ARLA, The Association of Residential Letting Agents, has announced that David Cox will be the new Managing Director Designate.

Cox was previously at the National Landlords Association and will join ARLA immediately and will be shadowing Ian Potter, the current MD, until he occupies the roll fully in June. It is hoped that the five month transition period should lead to a smooth transition between leaders.

Cox said ” I am delighted to be joining ARLA and look forward to applying the experience and knowledge gained at UIPI and NLA to ensure continued success for its membership and the lettings industry.

“It is an exciting time for the lettings industry and I will work hard to ensure ARLA’s voice is heard across the policy, media and broader business sphere.”

Mark Hayward, current Managing Director of the NAEA said: “We had some excellent applicants for the role, but all agreed that David was the right person for the job. I look forward to working with David over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition and that the highest standards to our membership are maintained.”

Martin & Co Huddersfield Director (Letting Agent Huddersfield, Estate Agent Huddersfield, Property Management Huddersfield), William Taylor, added “ARLA has a strong reputation and the sensible transition period should see them retain the hard work that the previous MD has put in. We have discussed regulation at length and hopefully Mr Cox may well add to the pressure to see all letting agents regulated by an industry trade body.”
