Richard Lambert stands down as CEO of National Landlords Association
Richard Lambert stood down from his role of CEO of the National Landlords Association on 11 April after the merger with the Residential Landlords Association completed.
Richard said: "I stood down from my role as CEO of the National Landlords Association yesterday once the merger with the Residential Landlords Association completed. I’d like to thank everyone - colleagues, partners, suppliers and stakeholders - who have worked with me over the past 8 years to make the NLA a better, more professional, more member-centric organisation. I’ve been fortunate to work with a supportive and understanding Board who have accepted my advice, backed my judgement and guided me when I needed it. I’d also like to thank the many, many NLA members I met as I travelled round the country, who gave me invaluable insights into the practical reality of being a working landlord. I supported the merger from the start because it was obvious that a single, united organisation would be stronger together than two very similar bodies competing.
I wish the National Residential Landlords Association and its new CEO, Ben Beadle every success. Even before the current complications, the next few years were set to be a challenging time for the private rented sector, and landlords need the best possible support and representation. I’m going to enjoy the break, but will be actively looking for a new challenge"
