Nick Talbot Chief Executive Officer

Nick worked in various senior client facing and internal roles in EY and KPMG between 1998 and 2011, before joining the professional body RICS as a Director with global responsibilities. In 2015 Nick was asked to become interim CEO of IVSC and lead a restructure which he did before being offered the full time CEO role by the IVSC Board of Trustees in 2016.

Since joining the IVSC, Nick has overseen the introduction of technical standards boards for all valuation asset classes. Nick has placed a strong focus on the adoption of IVS which has seen its use increase significantly throughout the world over recent years. He has led efforts to foster and enhance partnerships and collaboration with governments, leading financial and market regulators and other global standards setters. Nick has also overseen a strong growth in the IVSC’s member network, which has almost doubled since 2015 and now includes prominent organisations in all regions of the world.

Nick is a well-known public speaker both for IVS, and outside of work for various Cystic Fibrosis Charities around the world. As part of his charity fundraising work, Nick achieved significant media coverage before becoming the first person with Cystic Fibrosis to summit Everest in 2016 (having previously survived two major natural disasters during earlier attempts). His efforts for work and charity have brought various accolades including a Point of Light Award from the UK Prime Minister.

Nick was educated at Lancaster University (1994-98) during which time he also spent periods living and working in France and Italy.
