Eric Walker - Northwood MDEric Walker has been appointed to the role of Managing Director at Northwood GB, the letting agency best known for specialising in guaranteed rent.

I have met Eric at several industry events and we have remained friends and kept in touch online ever since. In my opinion he is definitely one of the good guys in the letting industry and Northwood are very lucky to have him on board and leading the company forwards.

Eric takes over the role from Nick Cooper, who died last month of pancreatic cancer, aged 50.  He was a great friend of Nick and a fellow member of the SAFEagent steering group.

With more than 20 years’ experience in the lettings and property industry, Eric joins Northwood from Your Move, where he was Regional Managing Director for its South-East division. Pror to that he was Group Managing Director for Bushells from 2008 until its acquisition last year.

Eric Walker said: “It is an honour and privilege to follow in the footsteps of my dear friend Nick Cooper.  Northwood is a fantastic firm and I have long been impressed by its business model and brand values.  I am looking forward to working with the network and continuing Nick’s drive for excellence in the lettings industry.”

Gemma Goodson, Northwood’s Financial Director, said: “It was Nick’s wish that Eric would become Managing Director as they shared the same working ethos and passion, particularly in raising professional standards in the lettings industry.  Eric brings an outstanding track record and breadth of experience and we are delighted to welcome Eric to Northwood.”

I've worked in many sectors, but this is what I love about the PRS - it's such a close sector and a real people-business. Hopefully Nick's family are getting some comfort from knowing the business has moved forward as he would've wished.
