Chris Bramham is leaving Brightstar Financial and has been placed on gardening leave.
Bramham has been at Brightstar since July 2014, most recently as director of specialist mortgages and buy-to-let.
Before that he was managing director of Kings Group Estate and Letting Agents, while he spent much of his early career at Northern Rock, rising to area sales manager.
Brightstar promoted Bradley Moore to managing director and William Lloyd to director last week.
Brightstar declined to comment.
