New landlord group chief executive announced

Ben Beadle is to be the chief executive of the new National Residential Landlords Association in the UK.

The organisation is formed from the merger of the National Landlords Association and the Residential Landlords Association and it will launch in January 2020. Beadle will join in November.

Beadle is currently director of operations at Touchstone, part of the Places for People housing group and was previously managing director of TDS Northern Ireland and Director of Customer Service with the TDS, the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.

‘Ben has a depth and breadth of knowledge of private renting which will be a tremendous asset to our campaigning and members’ services,’ said Alan Ward, RLA chair and Adrian Jeakings, NLA chair.

Both chairmen paid tribute to their respective current chief executives, Richard Lambert at the NLA and Andrew Dixon at the RLA for the dedication to the task and support in the detailed work of bringing the organisations together.

Both will leave at the end of the year.

The merger was approved by RLA and NLA members on 17 September this year.
