KBSA national chair Richard Hibbert said of Ruth's resignation: "Ruth has been a valuable member of our team and her contributions to our continued success are very much appreciated.
Uwe Hanneck said that over the coming weeks, the Association will start the process of recruiting a suitable candidate to take forward the KBSA's sales & marketing activities.
"The new recruit will, in cooperation with our existing staff at our head office in Mansfield, work to deliver and implement our future policy based on the strategy that has been developed over the past two years," he said.
"In the interim, Dawn Harlow, membership manager and I, will take direct control of all sales & marketing activities and make sure that it is business as usual.
