Hornsby quits Mortgage 2000

Sean Hornsby, managing director of Mortgage 2000, is to leave the company at the end of September.

News of the departure was included in the Moneysupermarket.com IPO prospectus, details of which emerged yesterday. Senior staff were also notified yesterday.

Hornsby, who is planning to take some time out from the mortgage industry, says: “Mortgage 2000 has reached a pivotal stage in its growth, and now is the right time for someone to take the helm on a long-term basis.”

Hornsby will be assisting the directors of Moneysupermarket.com in finding a suitable successor.
