Rural Valuer recognised with top industry award

Rural Valuer recognised with top industry award

QV registered Valuer David Paterson has had his outstanding service to the valuation profession recognised with the New Zealand Institute of Valuers (NZIV) Premier Award - the John M Harcourt Memorial Award.

Paterson, who has been a valuer for more than 30 years and is the National Manager of QV business, Rural Value, accepted the award in front of 300 attendees at the NZIV conference in Rotorua earlier this month.

He told the audience, “I feel honoured to receive this award, especially when you note some of the previous recipients.”

“In terms of my professional career this is a highlight,” he said.

David has been involved with the NZIV since 1985, holding various positions in the Southland and Otago branches, and as Southland branch councillor and Southern region councillor.

He is currently the NZIV representative on the Professional Practices Committee – set up to consider complaints about valuer members on behalf of the NZIV and other members on behalf of PINZ.

Committee members are mainly valuers, or have been valuers. They try to expedite investigations to minimise the timeframe and the impact on those involved.

David says that being involved in this area of the profession does make him think seriously about how he completes his day-to-day work.

In David’s citation he said for the valuing profession to prosper in the future the industry needs to focus on attracting more young people to the profession.

“I have found it a varied, interesting and rewarding career and there are opportunities, particularly for rural valuers around the country,” he said.
