The Appraisal Institute, the nation’s largest professional association of real estate appraisers, has named Jim Amorin as its new chief executive.
 
Amorin, who has been acting CEO since last August, served as the Appraisal Institute’s president in 2009 and 2017 and has been involved in numerous committees within the organization. Amorin, who was formerly vice president of Atrium Real Estate Services in Austin, replaces Frederick H. Grubbe, who resigned last year after a decade on the job.
 
“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.”
