The organisation was heavily criticised at the start of last week by agents for its terrible handling of president Kirsty Finney’s unexpected departure, and then its CEO Tom Balcon quit, which led to a flurry of negative comments from agents.
Balcon’s departure is the latest controversial resignation at Propertymark.
David Cox’s sudden departure from ARLA Propertymark last year was announced in an extraordinarily short 44-word statement, while Christopher Hamer also surprisingly stepped down as executive chairman of the trade body last year.
Meanwhile, the now former chief executive of Propertymark, Mark Hayward, postponed his retirement in December 2020 to take on a new role of chief policy advisor at Propertymark.
It would not come as a surprise if Hayward postpones his retirement again and takes on the chief exec role. But is Propertymark’s reputation now beyond repair?
