RICS Chief Operating Officer Resigns

RICS Chief Operating Officer Resigns
04 June 2021

Violetta Parylo, Chief Operating Officer at RICS, has resigned with immediate effect.

Parylo was responsible for the long-term financial strategy of RICS, leading corporate services, including information technology, property management, facilities, legal, compliance, risk and corporate governance.

A spokesperson told “We can confirm that Violetta Parylo, chief operating officer, has decided to leave RICS to pursue other opportunities and will depart on 4 June 2021."

ThisWeekinFM has approached RICS for additional comment.

The institution has recently come under criticism for paying its CEO a six-figure bonus amid redundancies and use of the furlough scheme. RICS will also be subject to an independent review this year, after four non-executive directors claimed that they were let go from their positions after drawing attention to a potentially damaging BDO governance report.
