Ben Beadle (pictured) is set to be the chief executive of the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA).
Beadle is currently director of operations at Touchstone and will join the NRLA in November.
The NRLA is the merger of National Landlords Association and the Residential Landlords Association and is set to launch in January 2020.
Alan Ward, RLA chair and Adrian Jeakings, NLA chair, said: “Ben has a depth and breadth of knowledge of private renting which will be a tremendous asset to our campaigning and members’ services.”
Both of the current chief executives at the NLA and RLA, Richard Lambert and Andrew Dixon respectively, will leave at the end of the year.
