Tony Jones has revealed hell be relinquishing his position on the board of the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries following his departure from Pink Home Loans.
The former managing director of Pink has been a member of the AMI board since June 2006 representing appointed representatives and network.
However, following his decision earlier this month to quit the network due to ill health, he plans to give up his involvement and hand the reigns over to another network representative.
Jones says: I will carry on my involvement with AMI and its board, but as I am no longer a representative of a network I will have to relinquish the position in time.
He adds that its up to Chris Cummings, director general of AMI, to decide when he will fully renounce his position on the board.
He is also leaving it up to Cummings to decide the extent of his future involvement in the association.
Jones was with Pink for four and a half years as managing director but was absent on long-term sick for three months before resigning.
Prior to that he held the position of head of business development at UCB Home Loans, and spent 20 years at Nationwide.
He is expected to recharge his batteries before resuming his career in the spring with consultancy and related work closer to his Gloucestershire home.
Jones adds: Right now my priority is my health but I hope to be back on the scene in the next couple of months.
AMI was unavailable for comment.
