The head of finance at Propertymark/NFoPP was dismissed last week, it has apparently been confirmed.
Rob Clutton became director of finance in 2009, and so was eight years in the job.
Propertymark ARLA chief executive David Cox told EYE: “Subject to the conclusion of our internal disciplinary process, I can confirm that Rob Clutton, Head of Finance, was dismissed from the organisation last week but there is no suggestion of any misuse of company funds.”
According to Companies House, Clutton was appointed as secretary to NFoPP in June last year.
His departure appears to follow that of marketing boss Brian Schubert.
EYE has been unable to reach either of the two men for comment.
Today staff at Arbon House are due to be briefed on structural changes at Propertymark in an off-site meeting.
It is believed that they will be told of the new direction that the organisation will be taking, possibly of one or two more redundancies, and of the possible appointment of a new operations director who may have previously been with the RICS.
