Ex-NAEA president quits NFOPP board

Stewart Lilly

FORMER National Association of Estate Agents president Stewart Lilly has quit the National Federation of Property Professionals board over his concerns about the body’s future direction.

The NFOPP was established as an ‘amalgamation’ of the NAEA and the Association of Residential Letting Agents and Mr Lilly, at the helm in 2007-8, was the first NAEA president to sample the joint organisation first hand. He says that at the time, the NFOPP board’s overseeing role was to be for budgetary, policy and strategy only, and would not be the public face to consumers.

In his resignation letter to NFOPP chief executive Peter Bolton King, Mr Lilly says: “Recent events have led me to believe that I’m no longer in tune with the strategy and direction that the board wishes to pursue. I remain concerned that some recommendations to the board from NAEA Council have either been rejected or overruled. I am also increasingly anxious about the state of the finances which are worryingly out of line with budgets.”

Nevertheless, Mr Lilly insists that he will remain a member of the NAEA, which he first joined in 1968.
