ARMA and IRPM considering merger

Today, 2nd August, ARMA and IRPM have told their respective memberships that they are considering a merger of the two organisations.

In a joint statement by ARMA and IRPM CEOs, Nigel Glen and Andrew Bulmer, respectively, it was highlighted that ARMA and IRPM have worked closely on a wide range of topics and believe that a merger will give them greater power and a stronger voice to support both managing agent firms and professional individuals.

Should the merger be approved by ARMA and IRPM members, the intention is to bring the two organisations, and their respective secretariat teams, together before the end of 2021. The intention is to retain the two brands for a period of time, under the new organisation.

It is proposed that Andrew Bulmer will become CEO of the new organisation, and Nigel Glen will become the Executive Chair of the new Board, which will be appointed in due course.

Andrew Bulmer (IRPM CEO) and Nigel Glen (ARMA CEO) commented:

“Combining our resources, data and expertise allows us to more effectively support our membership through guidance and business support, raise standards through enhanced professional qualifications, multi-channel training and ongoing professional development opportunities, and provide a more influential and representative voice to our ongoing government and stakeholder engagement.”






LEASE is governed by a board, appointed as individuals by the Secretary of State for the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities.
