The Intermediary Mortgage Lenders Association (IMLA) has confirmed the appointment of Charles Haresnape, Managing Director for Residential Mortgages at Aldermore Bank, as its new Chairman following a unanimous vote by members of its Executive Committee.

Charles was first appointed as Deputy Chair of IMLA in 2012 and succeeds David Finlay as Chairman following his departure from Barclays Bank. Charles will serve until IMLA's Annual General Meeting in November 2014 when its next board election will take place.

 Charles Haresnape commented:

"I am looking forward to building on David's great contribution as IMLA Chairman and helping to move the organisation forward as we continue to grow. This is an exciting time for the industry with mortgage brokers increasingly at the heart of delivering quality products and services to consumers. IMLA has a vital role to play in supporting lender/broker relationships and informing broader efforts to shape a balanced and sustainable mortgage market."

Peter Williams, IMLA Executive Director, commented:

"Charles will head up a strong team of IMLA directors who are committed to work closely with our members and associates, fellow trade bodies, government and regulators to encourage the healthy growth of the mortgage and housing markets.  Charles has already led on member and associate recruitment and has been instrumental in the growth of IMLA in recent years, and we will continue to seek new partners moving forwards."
