- Peter Bell, Founder & CEO
Having been strongly focused on customer care in his own project management businesses, Peter Bell was surprised to witness how poorly his clients often seemed to be treated in the commercial property sector.
The market appeared to be dominated by landlords and their representatives and the whole ‘system’ geared very much towards the seller and not the buyer.
This situation drove him to set up his own tenant representative organisation in 2014 and today, as founder and CEO of the CTA, Peter continues to stand even firmer to defend the rights and position of commercial tenants. His vision is to address the inequality in the industry, expose unfair practices and ensure that tenants get treated as valued customers.
Ultimately he wants to see a fair and equitable market for both landlords and tenants so that a more harmonious relationship can prevail.
We strive for the commercial property market to be fair and equitable for all and for tenants to be treated as valued customers.
We are here to change things for the better by creating a trusted safe haven and by being the champion and the voice for commercial tenants.
Everything we do is based on our core values that define us. We are:
