Spotlight on the newly elected chairman of BFA

Mr. Goddard, also the proprietor of Belvoir Letting, has been one of the strong advocates of the franchising business format. He has always actively assisted and supported BFA via various regional forums. He has been previously the Chairman of the Accreditation Committee.
As a founder and Chief Executive of Belvoir Lettings, he has always strived to make it as a major player in the industry.
