Guarantor lender Amigo Loans has announced that previous chief executive Glen Crawford will be re-joining the company as CEO.
Crawford had stepped down in April 2019 to undergo medical treatment but is now ready to re-join subject to obtaining the necessary regulatory approvals.
Acting chairman of Amigo, Roger Lovering, said: “I am delighted that Glen has decided to re-join the company. He is a natural choice and brings experience and leadership to the company at this challenging time.”
Crawford said: “I am pleased to have this opportunity to step back into the driving seat at Amigo with the support of the board.”
Amigo Loans recently suspended lending to new customers amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
In March this year, Amigo’s founder, James Benamor, resigned from the board after reinstating himself three months prior. In the same month, Benamor published a blog publicly criticising the alleged actions of Amigo’s board.
