The Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association (IMLA) has elected its management committee for 2022, consisting of five elected directors and four co-opted directors.
Jeremy Duncombe of Accord Mortgages has been elected as chair, stepping into the role from vice chair earlier this year after Louisa Sedgwick stood down.
Kevin Purvey of Coventry Building Society has been elected vice-chair.
The remaining directors are Richard Beardshaw, HSBC, who previously served as co-opted director from 2019 to 2021, previous IMLA chair Louisa Sedgwick of Hampshire Trust Bank, and Tracy Simpson of Cambridge Building Society, who has joined the committee for the first time.
The four co-opted directors are Andy Dean, Nationwide, Craig McKinlay, Kensington Mortgages, Adrian Moloney, One Savings Bank, and Steve Seal, Bluestone Mortgages.
Both McKinlay and Seal have joined the management committee for the first time.
Kate Davies, executive director of IMLA, said: “This is IMLA’s largest management committee to date and I would like to congratulate all those who have been elected, especially Jeremy, who has done a great job as chair after stepping in on an interim basis in March 2021.
“IMLA now consists of 46 Full and 13 associate members, and the new committee is looking forward to raising our profile, representing the sector and delivering benefits for all our members in 2022.
“It’s good to see a more diverse committee for 2022, with Louisa and Tracy on board, and the mix of new and experienced members should give us an excellent base on which to build in the coming year.”
