The auctioneer Peter Baldwin has been appointed the chief executive officer of the stock and station agents industry group, Australian Livestock and Property Agents Association.

The appointment by ALPA president Warren Johnston follows the retirement of Andy Madigan next month after 15 years at the organisation. 

"Mr Madigan has seen vast change across the agency industry over that time and helped to navigate us through an evolving agriculture space that is increasingly reliant on technology and influenced by the perceptions of the broader community," Johnston said. 

Baldwin will commence at ALPA on October 9 and Madigan will leave the week after the annual general meeting.

Baldwin's career has been as a property auctioneer for almost three decades at Richardson & Wrench, but he has a strong foundation in the stock and station profession.

Baldwin had a rural background, growing up at Inverell in northern NSW and beginning his career with his father's stock and station agency, Brian Baldwin and Company.

Brian Baldwin is a life member of the Inverell Stock and Station Agents Association and a long-time member after joining the NSW Stock and Station Agents Association in 1969.

Peter Baldwin was the youngest auctioneer known to sell prime cattle, sheep and lambs in the Inverell Saleyards. He was also calling horse races in the far north of NSW and southern QLD from the age of 15.

Baldwin holds a Bachelor of Business in Land Economy from Hawkesbury Agricultural College (UWS).

Over the past 29 years, Peter has auctioned over 35,000 properties mostly across Sydney, but also Noosa, with a value in excess of $14 billion.

He holds the highest auction sale price records in over 30 Sydney Suburbs, including an Australasian apartment sale record of $10.35 million in Darling Point which equated to $50, 000 per square metre.
