Nick Talbot has 13 years of experience in senior management roles
July 18, 2016: The International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC), the global standard setter for valuation practice and the valuation profession, announced the appointment of Nick Talbot as its CEO.
Talbot was previously interim CEO of the IVSC on a part time basis from June 2015 to March 2016. Prior to this, Talbot spent 13 years in a variety of international, senior management roles at accountancy firms like Ernst & Young and KPMG before joining The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) as a director four years ago.
During his tenure as interim CEO, Talbot produced a renewed strategy for IVSC and increased sponsorship and members. The organisation has been implementing the changes within the strategy since the start of 2016.
Talbot said: “My priorities will be to work with the Board and stakeholders, in particular all of the valuation professional organisations to create high quality and internationally accepted standards, and to help further the use of these standards globally by qualified professionals to underpin investor confidence.”
Sir David Tweedie, Chairman of the IVSC, said: “We are delighted with Talbot’s appointment. During his time as our interim CEO, he achieved notable success in creating and gaining approval of the IVSC’s new strategy.
“We are very confident in his ability to drive forward the IVSC in its mission to develop high quality international valuation standards which underpin consistency, transparency and confidence in valuations across the world. His energy and knowledge of the valuation profession will be invaluable to us.”
