David Votta from the Kent-based Votta Sales and Lettings has been revealed as the new ARLA Propertymark President.
He has been in the industry for over a decade and in his new role he aims to help professionalise and regulate the industry, and to wipe out rogue agents and rogue landlords that continue to operate outside of the law.
He says: “I want to help Propertymark on their journey to create a level playing field for all landlords and agents so that housing standards are maintained and wave goodbye to those that flout the law.”
Votta continues: “I’m stepping into the role at a key time for the lettings industry especially now the Renters Reform White Paper has been published. I’m looking forward to getting my feet under the table and supporting Propertymark by ensuring that members views are heard as they scrutinise its detail.
“I echo all that Propertymark stands for and I am humbled to be able to help promote the organisation as it continues to build on its successes and influence the future shape of our sector.”
Two presidential team appointments have also been announced.
Greg Tsuman, lettings director at Martyn Gerrard will be joining as President Elect for ARLA Propertymark and Toby Leek, Head of Sales at Laurent Residential will become Vice President for NAEA Propertymark.
