Mr Allan Ford, President of the New Zealand Property Institute Establishment Board, today announced the appointment of Conor English as the new organization's CEO.
The New Zealand Property Institute is being formed from the New Zealand Institute of Valuers, the Property and Land Economy Institute of New Zealand (PLEINZ), and the Institute of Plant and Machinery Valuers.

Last year, 89% of Valuers and 97% of PLEINZ members voted for amalgamating the existing institutes to form the new Institute.
Mr English said today, " The formation of the New Zealand Property Institute is a very progressive and forward looking initiative. This is both an exciting and challenging time in the New Zealand property sector. Along with the rest of the team, I am looking forward to building the new institute."
