He joined the trade association in 2009 from training company ReMIT, where he also continued as chief executive.

“Having achieved the objective I was given of putting the RMI back into profit, I am now stepping down as chief executive to pursue my other business interests, particularly ReMIT,” he said.

“The RMI 2010 results are excellent: sales are up, membership is up, costs are down and strong foundations have been laid for the future.

“If these foundations continue to be built upon, together with the new initiatives that have been put in place, the Federation will continue to thrive.

“I wish to thank my teams at the RMI and ReMIT for all their hard work and commitment and wish the RMI and all of its associations the best of luck.”

A new management structure and strategy for the Federation is under development.

In the interim, Sue Robinson, head of the franchised division, Stuart James, head of the garage division and finance director Kevin Waterman will take responsibility for running the RMI.
