As a result of the Financial Conduct Authority’s approval, interim chair Roger Lovering, who has been in the role since mid-June, has resigned with immediate effect but will remain on the board as a non-executive director.
A day earlier, the guarantor loans provider, also appointed Maria Darby-Walker, a PR adviser with a client list including the FCA, The Investment Association, Cadbury and Rio Tinto, as a non-executive director.
She will take over as chair of Amigo’s remuneration committee following her approval by the FCA.
As is customary in these announcements, Roe expressed his delight at his new role
“Nothing I have seen in the last two months since I joined the board as a non-executive director has diminished my belief that everyone at Amigo shares a common intent of serving its current and future customers’ needs,” he added.
“We have significant challenges but we have the spirit to meet them. We have geared up to handle the October end of Covid-19 forbearance and we continue to be sensitive to the uncertainties that many of our customers are currently facing.”
