Conti Financial Services' founder Simon Conn will leave the company after 15 years.
Sales and marketing director Conn set up the overseas mortgage specialist in 1994 after starting his career as part of Legal & General's direct sales force.
He leaves Conti to pursue new ventures but will continue to advise the group on a technical basis as a retained consultant.
"I'm still keen to contribute to the success of the company which I started from scratch in 1994. I see it as a 'win win' situation," says Conn.
The firm merged with Anchor Mortgages in 2007, providing direct access to the overseas mortgage market plus mortgage deals for the domestic market to UK residents and foreign nationals.
Michael Axelrod, commercial director at the firm, will incorporate Conn's role into his own.
"We believe Conti needs to be in position to offer clients access to everything they require to buy or own a property abroad. Conti has built up a strong and respected brand but we must now adapt to the challenges of the changing market and ensure our business model reflects all of our clients' needs," he says.
