Agents’ Mutual says no decision has yet been taken on a replacement for regional estate agency chief Clive Rook, who has quit the board of the organisation which operates new portal OnTheMarket.
Ian Springett, OTM chief executive, has told Estate Agent Today that "Agents' Mutual's board will continue to develop in line with the needs of the business. We have no announcements to make in this regard at this time."
In response to the story, Agents Mutual announced that Rook had not sought re-election at the company annual meeting “because he wishes to be able to focus more time on his highly successful estate agency business in the north east.”
Rook runs Rook Matthews Sayer, a prominent estate and letting agency with 17 branches in the north east of England.
The remaining board members of Agents’ Mutual are predominantly London-based.
