The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) welcomes former Chairman of the Constitutional and Regulatory Review Steering Group Peter Goodacre as their new president.
Goodacre, who is replacing David Tuffin, has had a long and successful career in the industry. Before qualifying in 1968, Goodacre studied at the College of Estate Management. He then worked as a Quantity Surveyor in a private practice prior to spending a year at the University of Loughborough where he received an MSc in Construction. He later joined the teaching staff at the College of Estate Management in 1970, only to become Vice Principal in 1984, and principal in 1992.
Goodacre’s first affiliation with RICS came about through its research committees, which led him to being elected to the QS divisional council. He has been a member of Governing Council since 1986 and in 1998 became president of the QS division.
Goodacre will be working alongside the recently elected Senior Vice-President Max Crofts, who will be working closely with the incoming president over the coming year, before assuming the presidency next July.
