Atam Verdi MRICS

Executive Director

Aspinall Verdi Limited

I have been a regional board member for a number of years and it gives me the opportunity to both feedback and learn about the activities that the RICS are undertaking.  The engagement is important as then the organisation can ensure that it serves members effectively.  I can also network with other colleagues from a broad range of backgrounds and organisation and it is always good to listen to other perspectives.

Working with the Board helps maintain my professional and personal interest in land and resources especially as the world changes and we move to collaborative approaches requiring different methods of valuation for those things that have previously only been measured by financial value.

John Holt MRICS


Turner & Townsend

I am looking to use my wide experience to support the board, from working as a client, contractor and consultant, in building surveying, project management, quantity surveying and infrastructure. From this experience, and leadership in business and major programmes, I want to support all our members to have a voice and enable the RICS to develop. Using the member network I am aiming to bring insight, balanced opinions and extensive knowledge to enable the RICS to improve as an institution in standards, inclusivity, sustainability and innovation (smart working) for all its sectors and members.
