Propertymark Chief Policy Advisor wins Lifetime Achievement Award

The Negotiator’s Lifetime Achievement Award 2021 highlights a truly instrumental figure within the property sector and has been awarded to Propertymark’s Mark Hayward.

Over his 49 years within the industry — working for independents to multi-national companies and managing multiple branches — there are very few corners of agency that are unknown to Mark, whose extensive experience has seen four market crashes. 

Previously holding the titles of NAEA Propertymark President, Chairman of the Propertymark Board, Managing Director, Chief Executive and most recently Chief Policy Advisor of Propertymark, Mark’s passion for giving back to the sector led him to train multiple property agents across the nation.

His career has seen him working closely with the likes of the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC), the Treasury, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the Home Office, Cabinet Office and Ministry of Justice (MoJ).

Passionate about changing the reputation of the sector, he has long called for sector regulation and was an integral part of the Regulation of Property Agents Working Group.

He sits on The Property Ombudsman Board, the Tenancy Deposit Scheme Board, the UK Government’s Economic Crime Strategic Board and more.

Mark retires from Propertymark at the end of 2021.

It’s a complete surprise and an absolute honour to receive the Negotiator’s Lifetime Achievement Award or 2021. 

The outstanding acknowledgement by the industry has been utterly humbling, to say the least. I had dedicated a large portion of my career to supporting newer generations within the industry and look forward to the professionalisation of the sector.
