IMLA appoints John Maltby as chairman

The Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association has appointed John Maltby as its chairman.

IMLA has also appointed a management committee which will comprise of Iain Crump, Tim Dawson and outgoing chairman John Heron.

Maltby says: “I&#39m delighted to be taking over the chairmanship of IMLA at an exciting and challenging time in the industry, with a whole variety of different issues facing us, such as regulation and how lenders and intermediaries should respond to it. I look forward to interesting times ahead.”

Heron says: “The past year has been a particularly busy one. We worked hard to help deliver a credible trade body for intermediaries, which I believe we now have in the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries. Much time has been dedicated to ensuring that the FSA received a high quality response to its various consultations from IMLA members.

“Due to the interest and participation of its members, IMLA is today a stronger and more influential organisation than it has ever been and I am delighted that Maltby has stepped forward to lead IMLA into 2004.”
