Pink announces successor to Tony Jones

Pink Home Loans has moved swiftly to replace outgoing managing director Tony Jones by replacing him with Mutual One MD Barry Meeks.

Jones quit the Skipton Building Society-owned network earlier this month so he could work closer to his family home in Gloucestershire.

Meeks has held a number of senior roles at Skipton over recent years, notably as managing director of three subsidiary companies: HML, Amber Credit and most recently Mutual One.

He says: “Our plans for Pink are ambitious and challenging and I’m looking forward to playing a key part in taking the company to the next level and building on their established success as a major mortgage network.”

Pink chairman Steve Haggerty says: “He shares our vision that we want to build Pink into the UK’s best, biggest and foremost mortgage network and I’m sure that ably assisted by the existing very strong executive team at the company he will make that happen.”
