John Socha joined the Small Landlords Association (SLA) in 1996 and became its Chairman in 2000. In 2003 he was instrumental in taking the decision to create a more professional representative organisation and the SLA became the NLA, reflecting its UK-wide membership. John became the first NLA Vice-Chairman.
Now, after two terms as a non-executive director and Vice Chairman, John Socha is stepping down to concentrate fully on his own business interests in Northampton and further afield.
Speaking after his final Board meeting, John Socha, said: “Having been involved on the national landlord stage for thirteen years, it’s now the right time to move on and focus more fully on my business and other interests. I am very proud of what the SLA and NLA have achieved and I will be watching with keen interest to see the NLA continuing to grow and to help raise standards across the sector.”
