E-Homebuying Forum appoints Tom Parker as new Chairman

Tom will be working with Sir Bryan to bring together industry to deliver greater efficiency, transparency and commitment to the home buying and selling process. His role will also include working with EHF members – who represent all relevant businesses and stakeholders including estate agents, surveyors, search firms, lenders and solicitors – to achieve consensus on how to bring market-driven improvements to the home buying and selling process.   Subsequently, the EHF will liaise with Government and industry to effect these improvements.

Tom Parker said:

“It is a great honour to join a group of forward thinking businesses as we work towards transforming the property transaction. This year has already proved to be a crucial year for the property marketplace and the next 6-12 months will be just as important. The recent change of Government requires industry to take a different approach in its approach to reforming the process, providing a clear need to act collaboratively to deliver market-led improvements.

The EHF provides the perfect setting for this debate and part of my role will be to call on businesses of all sizes to join us and support the principles set out in our Blueprint. The opportunity for reform has never been greater and I am very excited about what we can achieve together.” 

Sir Bryan Carsberg, President of the Forum says:

“Tom’s wealth of experience coupled with his enthusiasm for the role of the Chairman is good news for not only EHF members but for all those in the industry. He will be continuing Mark Riddick’s brilliant work, supporting EHF members and working with industry and stakeholders to improve the home buying and selling process and we look forward to having him on board.”
