Timothy Douglas (pictured) has taken on the head policy role for Propertymark, having joined the professional body in 2015.
Douglas previously worked as chief of staff in Westminster for a former business minister and government whip, and spent a period of time as a caseworker and researcher for members of the European Parliament.
Nathan Emerson, chief executive of Propertymark, said: “Timothy has been a dynamic and effective asset to Propertymark in the years he has been with us and I am excited to welcome him to his new role leading the policy and campaigns team.
"Timothy is highly regarded by key policy stakeholders and it is clear that his drive and energy will enhance Propertymark’s impact and amplify our members voice.”
Douglas added: “I’m delighted to be taking on this exciting role as I believe passionately in what Propertymark does as a membership organisation and the impact it has on supporting members and championing their needs to decision makers.
“Now more than ever, as the country continues to recover from the pandemic and we find new ways of working that are characterised by uncertainty and further legislative change, it is vital that Propertymark’s lobbying activity harnesses the collective expertise of our membership more effectively, continues to challenge the UK’s governments and politicians, and our approach is coordinated using research, partnership working and an effective media strategy.
“The policy and campaigns team look forward to meeting the challenges that members face across lettings, sales, auctioneering, valuation, inventories and commercial property."
