Memorial – Remembering Alistair Darling

December 7, 2023

This November 30th the IVSC announced the passing of Alistair Darling, Chair of the International Valuation Standards Council Board of Trustees.

As shared by the IVSC, Alistair assumed the role of Chair in 2019, following a long and illustrious career in public service, notably serving as the Chancellor of the Exchequer in the United Kingdom between 2007 and 2010. His tenure as Chair was marked by significant growth and development within the IVSC, driven by his unwavering commitment to the public interest. His contributions will leave an enduring legacy to the organisation and the valuation profession more broadly.

Throughout his time at the IVSC, Alistair has been deeply committed to enhancing professionalism and standards in our field. Under his leadership, he brought with him enormous expertise but also great humour and genuine warmth to his work, endearing him to all who had the pleasure of working alongside him.

As we mourn the loss of Alistair, we also celebrate his extraordinary life and the lasting impact he has had on both the IVSC and the wider global community. His legacy of integrity, dedication, and compassion will continue to inspire us all. He will be profoundly missed, but his spirit and the values he championed will remain at the heart of our work, both now and in the future.

Our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time, and we extend our deepest condolences to them.
