Peter Bolton King joins RICS



RICS has appointed Peter Bolton King, former Chief Executive of the National Federation of Property Professionals (NFoPP), as Global Residential Director.

Peter, an RICS member since 1979, joins the organisation from NFoPP where he was Group Chief Executive for almost nine years and oversaw the federation’s sales, lettings, commercial, auctions and overseas agency membership groups.

Based in RICS’ Parliament Square office, Peter will work alongside other professional group teams and will be tasked with further increasing the RICS presence in this important sector of the property profession, and promoting the role of RICS Residential globally. He will replace the out-going group director David Dalby, who will retire in July this year.

In his career to date, Peter has represented the UK property industry at the highest level on both the UK and international stages. He brings with him extensive experience of the residential and valuation sectors and has broad knowledge of overseas markets.

Prior to joining NFoPP, Peter spent five years at Bradford and Bingley as Senior Area Director and was an Area Director at Black Horse Agencies (1987-98). He was also appointed as the youngest ever salaried partner at Warwickshire-based Locke and England Chartered Surveyors in 1983.

We are absolutely delighted to have appointed Peter Bolton King as Residential Professional Group Director. Having somebody of Peter’s vast knowledge and experience will prove invaluable to our members, the institution and the property industry as a whole.

Ken Creighton, RICS Director of Professional Standards 

I am very pleased to have been able to accept this exciting role. The last nine years with NFoPP have been very enjoyable, but I am now looking forward to bringing to RICS the UK and global experience I have gained in order to help the institution meet its ongoing objectives and strategy.

Having someone of Peter’s calibre taking over this role demonstrates RICS’ commitment to raising standards and professionalism in this vital economic sector, and I look forward to working with him during the handover period, to establish a framework to take RICS Residential to the next level, in terms of influence and global reach.
