JUL 12, 2021 - 6:14 am
The American Society of Appraisers named David Crick, managing director of DavAir Group, international president. Crick, who began his one-year term in the role on July 1, is the first ASA member from outside the United States to be named international president.
“David’s unique experience, leadership and perspective will be a valuable asset,” Johnnie White, CEO of the ASA, said. “His confirmation by membership attests to the society’s continued commitment to an international footprint. He, along with other leaders and staff, will serve an instrumental role in meeting the needs of our international membership from 60 countries and ensuring our global expansion efforts are fully realized.
“Excellence knows no boundaries, which is why now more than ever the time is right to connect with our international counterparts. Throughout the pandemic, we have seen continued demand by members, appraisers and allied professionals around the world for ASA’s education, credentialing and membership programs, as well as by consumers looking to hire qualified members, and as the world moves forward, ASA anticipates this demand will only increase.”
Over the past 15 months, the ASA has implemented a new governance model to foster strategic leadership; upgraded its technology infrastructure, including new association, learning and financial management systems; and worked to complete a refresh of its website to modernize and improve the user experience.
“I am honored and excited to take on the role of international president and look forward to supporting ASA’s global outreach,” Crick said.
The ASA is an international organization devoted to the appraisal profession.
