Over the last few years AMI’s reputation as a trade body has grown considerably and I’m relishing the opportunity to join its enthusiastic and committed team.
“The months and years ahead will certainly provide plenty of challenges for mortgage intermediary firms, and having spent nearly four years as editor of Mortgage Introducer, I am acutely aware of intermediary concerns. AMI is not about to stand still, but will continue to represent its members’ interests at all levels and it is my hope to drive forward its continued development.
“I’m looking forward to working with Chris Cummings and his team, and also getting out into the country to meet the AMI membership.”
