Adam Binns to step down as NZIV President
The New Zealand Institute of Valuers President Adam Binns is announcing his intention to step down as President of the organisation after the Annual General Meeting on June 9."Heather is an excellent candidate, her contribution to Council in the past few years has been outstanding and I will depart knowing the Institute, which I care for so much, is in very good hands," Adam says.
"Many of you will know that the business I am a partner in has been growing in the past couple of years, and I have been juggling that expansion while devoting countless hours to the important work that NZIV carries out on a daily basis.
"It has now reached a point that I need to prioritise our business and make way for someone who is able to focus fully on the needs of NZIV members. I am delighted that NZIV Councillor Heather Beard has accepted nomination to become President and her election is due to take place after the AGM.
"It has been a tough couple of years for us as we've navigated the ups and downs of Covid 19, and I am proud of what we have achieved in difficult times. I want to thank the incredible support I have received from all our Councillors and Branches, and the contribution of the Property Institute's National Support Team.
"We have made good progress in recent years and have no doubt that this will continue under Heather's stewardship."
Heather Beard (R) is a Registered Valuer based in Queenstown.
On NZIV Council for the past three years, Heather also serves on the Property Institute of New Zealand Board as the NZIV representative.
Additionally, Heather is an appointed member of the Land Valuation Tribunal for Otago.
Heather specialises in commercial valuation throughout the Queenstown region, where she lives with her Husband Tom, and daughter, Persie.
"It's a huge honour to be the next President of NZIV. I am looking forward to working with members, Councillors, and the PINZ National Support Team as we promote the profession, and ensure we retain the confidence of the New Zealand public and our membership.”
"I want to thank Adam for his exceptional contribution to the Institute over the years and look forward to his continued support on Council."
