Bristol Property Agents Association appoints new president
The Bristol Property Agents Association (BPAA) has appointed Jeremy Richards, head of Jones Lang LaSalle’s Bristol office, as its new president.
Jeremy replaces outgoing president Andrew Main, head of office at Savills.
An inauguration ceremony earlier took place earlier this month at Bristol’s Thistle Grand attended by more than 500 people.
Jeremy Richards comments: “2014 looks set to be an exciting year for Bristol’s property market as we come out of the recession.
“Jones Lang LaSalle’s own research shows that Bristol is in a strong position to capitalise on the upturn and I’m looking forward to all the opportunities this presents in my new role.”
The BPAA is the collective voice of the Bristol property market, representing individuals from both the commercial and residential sectors.
It provides guidance, opinion and leadership on issues affecting the city’s prosperity and its expertise is used to inform discussions and decisions that affect Bristol.
It holds regular meetings with the Local Planning Authority and is an important consultee in planning policy and development control.
The Association has nearly 300 members.
