The Appraisals Institute has finally appointed a new CEO after searching for almost a year.

The global organization representing more than 18,000 real estate appraisal professionals in nearly 50 countries has named Jim Amorin of Austin, TX, to be its leader.

The former Appraisal Institute president has held several key roles in the association including acting CEO over the past year; and has served twice each as the organization’s president-elect, vice president and immediate past president. He has also chaired several of the association’s committees.

“Jim did an outstanding job as acting CEO, and we’re fortunate to have his leadership going forward,” Appraisal Institute President James L. Murrett, MAI, SRA said. “His experience in many Appraisal Institute leadership roles makes him highly qualified for this position, and I look forward to continuing to work with him.”
