Ex-Labour minister Sally Keeble to keep property managers honest

SallyKeebleFormer New Labour minister Sally Keeble is to be the new ARMA regulator, after former housing minister Rt Hon Keith Hill, also a minister in the Blair governments, quits in November.

Sally Keeble will chair the Regulatory Panel, which oversees ARMA members and determines disciplinary outcomes of cases involving member firms.

ARMA says:

“As a government minister Sally had responsibility for social exclusion and housing and has enjoyed a varied and highly successful career in senior positions, including council leader of the London Borough of Southwark.

“As a minister Sally took the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 through Parliament, and most recently held a senior role in international development.”

Mr Hill said: “The calibre of applicants was exceptionally high and Sally is expertly placed to take over a role which is crucial for the standing and integrity of the independent status of the Panel.”

Sally Keeble will take up the appointment in November 2016 when Mr Hill stands down after three years in the role.

    I wish Sally well in her new endeavors.
    Perhaps a more relevant qualification for her new role would have been if she had ever held a Spud-U-Like franchise, as she will soon find herself mired in the hot potato that is the Peverel/Firstport issue?
