The Association of Mortgage Intermediaries (AMI) has appointed Patrick Bunton as joint deputy chairman with immediate effect.
Bunton will support deputy chairman Stephen Smith of Legal & General Partnership and independent chairman, the Rt. Hon John Gummer MP.
A director of AMI since 2007, Bunton is also operations compliance director at L&C, the largest directly authorised residential mortgage broker in the UK.
His appointment was approved unanimously and he replaces Rob Clifford, formerly of Mortgage Force.
"Pat has always been a valuable member of the board and he brings a wealth of experience. I warmly welcome him into his new role for what is certain to be the most demanding year the mortgage intermediary community has faced to date," says Gummer.
Bunton says: "Last year was a challenging year for mortgage intermediaries. This year will see more of the same, but it is reassuring to know that we have such a strong trade association working hard to ensure our best interests are met throughout these turbulent times."The Association of Mortgage
