Property giant wins top federation post

Malcolm Naish, Scottish Widows Investment Partnership global head of property, has taken over as chairman of the Scottish Property Federation, it has announced.

He took over the post from Phil Miller. Buccleuch Property managing director David Peck will act as vice-chairman for 2010-11.

Naish's tenure began at a reception at Edinburgh's Caledonian Hilton Hotel. The event was attended by more than 190 industry and public sector delegates from across Scotland, who heard a speech by Scotland's chief planning officer Jim Mackinnon.

Naish qualified as a chartered surveyor in 1976 and has more than 35 years' experience in the real estate industry. Previously he was director and head of DTZ Investment Management and co-founded Fountain Capital Partners in 2002.

"Our industry's property markets remain fragile. We are also seeing an increasingly polarised market between London and the rest of the UK," he said.
