NAEA Propertymark President Kirsty Finney resigns

NAEA Propertymark president Kirsty Finney has resigned from her position just six months after taking on the role.

An email was sent to the association’s members on Saturday, which said: “Kirsty Finney will no longer be acting in the role of President of NAEA Propertymark.

“We are pleased that the current presidential team will be stepping up to ensure stability and a clear voice for members, said Liana Loporto as President Elect, Stephen McCarron as Vice President supported by former presidents Lauren Scott and Katie Griffin.”

It is understood that Finney, co-founder of Rodgers & Finney agency in Northern Ireland, stepped down due to ill health.

But the statement from Propertymark was rather blunt, with one agent pointing out that there was “no thanks for her hard work” or an explanation that her resignation was “due to family circumstance”.

“I sniff a rat,” said the agent.

Finney has also stepped down as a director at Rodgers & Finney.

    Owning an estate agency is one thing. Running a zoo is another.

    What a great lesson in to how to handle a difficult situation very, very poorly. This is a terrible thing to happen to anyone and NAEA must concentrate on supporting the departing president. Clearly putting out such an appalling email does absolutely nothing to help.  I’m sure there is absolutely no suggestion of any foul play but it seems NAEA are doing all they can to get people “sniffing a rat”. As an NAEA member I have certainly not seen any e-mail. All very disappointing but NAEA need to spend their energies supporting Kirsty.
