Saffron Building Society has confirmed that head of mortgages Peter Izard is leaving the mutual after 16 months in the job.
Izard joined Saffron in November 2012, with responsibility for its branch and intermediary distribution channels.
Prior to that, he spent over four years as corporate accounts director at the now defunct Portillion and was part of the team attempting to get it up and running as a lender.
Before Portillion, he spent five years as a senior manager of corporate accounts at GMAC-RFC and before that, he spent seven years as a key account manager at Intelligent Finance.
Saffron chief marketing officer Sarah Howe says: “I can confirm that Peter Izard is leaving Saffron to pursue other career opportunities elsewhere.
“Peter has played an important role in helping to establish the Saffron Building Society in the intermediary mortgage market and I would like to thank him for his significant contribution and wish him every success for the future.”
Mortgage Strategy understands that as of yet no decision has been made on Izard’s leaving date and who will be appointed his replacement.
