Savage takes up his new role as president with over 30 years’ worth of experience in both the UK and overseas lettings market.
His experience ranges from advising foreign governments, listed companies and high net wealth individuals, to working with trading standards divisions in two London boroughs.
He is currently chairman of Simplify Estate Management Ltd, and works on a consultancy basis for dedicated lettings and property management company, Prime Property Management, based in Essex.

“I’m overjoyed to take on the role. I am dedicated to the further growth and development of the ARLA message to consumers and its influence upon regulators and legislators. A main goal of mine is to continue to enhance the benefits offered to ARLA members and to encourage young people to view the industry as an exciting and rewarding career option.”
