David will be bringing his expertise to the strategic management of TDS. As CEO of ARLA Propertymark, David has campaigned for mandatory regulation of the lettings industry, client money protection legislation and to raise professional standards.

The qualified barrister joins Mark Hayward (CEO of NAEA Propertymark) who has been a TDS board member for the last three years.

Martin Partington, Chair of the TDS board, welcomed David’s appointment and said: “David is an excellent addition to the board and brings with him a wealth of experience of the property industry. Through his work at ARLA Propertymark, he has focussed on policy and stakeholder engagement, both of which are vital for TDS to continue to be a leader on improving standards in the private rented sector.”

David Cox added: “It’s a privilege to sit on the board of an organisation which shares the goal of improving the experiences of everyone involved in lettings.

“My experience of working with government and Whitehall departments will add value to the board, particularly with upcoming changes to legislation in the private rented sector.”
