Liz Peace OBE

CEO, British Property Federation

Liz became CEO of the British Property Federation in 2002, following a long and varied career in the MOD. During her time at the helm, the BPF has managed to change legislation on commercial leases, to win innumerable changes to planning and tax legislation and, working as part of a pan-industry alliance, to persuade the government to introduce REITs. Liz believes that there remains more work to be done to improve further the real estate industry’s standing with politicians, media and the public at large and to ensure that government policy does not damage its fragile and gradual recovery. Liz was awarded the CBE in the 2008 New Year Honours list for services to the property industry
