Is Propertymark’s new chief executive up to the job?

The new chief executive of Propertymark, now combining five agency trade bodies including the NAEA and ARLA, has no experience at all of this industry.

Is that a problem for CEO Tim Balcon, or an advantage?

That question is put to Balcon today in a video interview available exclusively to Estate Agent Today readers by leading industry consultant Chris Watkin.


In reality Balcon has vast experience of leading professional membership bodies, from GWINTO – an accreditation, qualification and training organisation for the gas and water industries - and then with the development of the Gas Safe Register.

Before Propertymark he was chief executive of the Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment as it transformed both its activities and membership.

So is he just the right man to prepare Propertymark for a more regulated world of estate agency? Or does he lack the fundamental understanding of the industry?

It’s a fascinating five minute video, and our thanks to Chris Watkin for sharing it with us.
