Ben Jordan, Managing Director of Macclesfield based property managers, Premier Estates, has been appointed as the national chairman of the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARMA).
Speaking to over 500 delegates at ARMA’s 17th Annual Conference in central London last week, Ben explained how he plans to bring his passion for raising standards of professionalism within the property management industry to the role:
“I am very proud to have been asked to chair our national trade association. From our base in Macclesfield, Premier Estates manages approximately 16,000 flats throughout England and Wales. We pride ourselves on providing the very best standards of service to our customers by ensuring that their homes are managed and maintained to the highest possible standards. I am really excited that my appointment as chairman of ARMA will give me a national platform to drive up standards for all flat owners. I am honoured to be involved in such worthwhile work.”
Ben takes over as chair at an important time in ARMA’s development. The Association is currently introducing an independent self-regulatory regime for its members, ‘ARMA-Q’. Due to be introduced in May 2013, ARMA-Q will provide a guarantee to people living in blocks of flats that their homes will be managed to a high standard by ARMA members. It will be the first time that managing agents have been subject to independent regulation and marks a welcome improvement in protection for leaseholders.
