David Salusbury, the former Chairman of the National Landlords Association (NLA), the UK Association of Letting Agents (UKALA), and of mydeposits, died on Saturday 21st April 2018, following a short illness. He was aged 74.
After a successful 30 year career with the Royal Air Force, David joined the then Small Landlords Association (SLA) in 2001, later becoming Executive Chairman in 2003.
As Chairman he was charged with turning the association into a national representative body – a process he began by changing the name to the NLA. He then went on to lead to the organisation for more than 10 years, overseeing its remarkable transformation by building its credibility and growing its membership by more than 16,000 accounts before stepping down in the summer of 2013.
David also served as Chair of mydeposits from its inception in 2006, and was instrumental in lobbying for insurance-based deposit protection for landlords and agents; a campaign which above all illustrated his drive and determination to press the concerns of his fellow landlords, while highlighting his energy in overcoming the succession of obstacles that he encountered.
After brokering the NLA’s partnership with UKALA in 2010, he went on to serve as its Chairman until 2016.
Richard Lambert, CEO at the NLA said:
“Throughout his life and career, David Salusbury commanded respect. He held his beliefs and principles strongly, and was prepared to be forthright in advancing or defending them.
“Without his drive and determination, the NLA would be unrecognisable as the organisation it is today”.
