Peter Williams, deputy director general at the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML), is to leave after 12 years with the association to become a self employed consultant.
He will leave on 30 September, but will continue to work with the CML in his new capacity.
Williams joined the CML in 1994 becoming deputy director general in 1997, when the CML and Building Society’s Association separated.
During his time at the CML Williams has also held posts as a board member at the Housing Corporation and as a member of numerous inquiries and reviews including the Home Ownership Task Force and the Review of Housing and Regeneration.
Michael Coogan, CML director general, says: "Peter has been an integral part of the success of the CML, at a time when the mortgage market has gone from strength to strength. He has had a major influence on UK housing policy over many years. We wish him all the best as he branches out into a wider portfolio of new ventures, and are pleased he will continue to help us on a number of ongoing issues."
