IMLA membership rises to 34


The Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association has increased its membership to 34 from 30 and re-appointed its chairman and deputy chairman.

The new members are CHL Mortgages, The Mortgage Lender, Tesco Bank and Vida Homeloans.

The trade body has also voted to re-elect Coventry Building Society director of intermediaries Kevin Purvey as chairman and BM Solutions head Phil Rickards as deputy.

Also re-elected as directors were John Heron of Paragon Group and Charles Haresnape of Aldermore.

They will be joined by Paul Darwin of Skipton Building Society, who replaces Precise Mortgages’ Alan Cleary, while Louisa Sedgwick of Vida Homeloans returns as a co-opted director.

Purvey says: “It has given me great pleasure to welcome our four new members over the course of the year. As a representative body, we see IMLA’s collective knowledge as a major source of our strength and I am delighted to continue serving as chairman for 2017.”
