The industry stalwart is set to finish work in April, stepping back from his current role of sales and marketing director at the building society.
He plans to spend his post-working life playing more golf and squash once Covid restrictions are lifted.
But he isn’t ready to completely step back from the mortgage industry completely and told Mortgage Solutions he would be keen to take on part time or consultancy work.
Amaira started his mortgage career at Bradford & Bingley in 1975 where he went on to become the head of sales for the Mortgage Express arm of the group.
He then joined Intelligent Finance as director of sales, before becoming head of intermediary sales at the Family Building Society.
He said: “It has been a pleasure to work in this great industry, which is full of some great people, that has a proven track record of overcoming adversity.
“The way it has responded to the current Covid crisis being an excellent example, with lenders, brokers, clubs, networks, packagers, valuers and conveyancers, all having worked together during this crisis. This will ensure that the industry will be even stronger when we finally rid ourselves of Covid.
“I will be leaving with many very happy memories to look back on, and having made many friends over the years.”
