RICS finalises appointments to its Standards and Regulation Board (SRB)

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) announces the appointment of members to its permanent Standards and Regulation Board (SRB). RICS has appointed ten individuals to the SRB, with nearly 300 candidates applying for the five RICS member and five independent members roles on the Board.

Following a careful and rigorous process led by Nigel Clarke (independent Chair of SRB), together with the support and expertise of Cindy Butts (independent recruitment specialist) and Clare Johnson MBE, FRICS (Deputy Head of Profession at the Valuation Office Agency) as the Appointment Panel, the final appointed individuals will help us build on our existing strong foundations and ensure independent regulation is fit for purpose and can meet the needs of the future.

These appointments follow recent appointments to the Professional Standards Steering Group and the pilot Consumer Working Group. With these groups reporting to the SRB, it is important to recognise that the diversity, breadth and depth of intellect, expertise and experience available to the Board is impressive. This collective experience positively informs and drives our regulatory agenda in the public interest, instilling confidence in the credibility of what and how we regulate.


The new SRB members are as follows:

  • Keith Thomas FRICS 
  • Olga Turner Baker MRICS
  • Sara Ensor MRICS
  • David Fogarty FRICS
  • Andrew Reynolds FRICS
  • Yo-Hann Tan
  • Lynne Livesey
  • Sukhvinder Kaur-Stubbs
  • Neil Stevenson
  • Jonathan Lurie

The new SRB members commenced their appointments on 13 May 2024, with an in-depth induction held on 22 and 23 May.

Nigel Clarke, Chair of RICS’ Standards and Regulation Board (SRB), said: “I am confident our new SRB will help inform and drive forward confidence in the quality of RICS’ regulation and strengthen trust in the profession.

“This is a busy time for RICS and the built environment, and the SRB is undertaking critical work on professional standards and regulation for our global profession. These excellent appointments arrive at the perfect moment, and with the successful inductions complete, we are already at work.”

Chris Alder, Senior Executive at RICS, said: “Establishing and maintaining world leading standards and regulatory practices is a central tenet of RICS’ global role, and the SRB lies at the heart of strategy and decision-making in this area.”
