A housing association's chief executive has quit his post after only 17 days in the role.
Bedfordshire Pilgrims Housing Association took on ex-banker Kevin Turmore to help it become more of a commercial outfit.
A BPHA spokesperson said that the CEO had quit for "purely personal reasons".
Mr Turmore took up the position on 6 January but he had left by the 23rd.
According to BPHA, Mr Turmore has not been paid any compensation as a consequence of the early termination.
In December last year, BPHA's chair, Stephen Hallet, said that Mr Turmore's experience would bring the social landlord "commercial and financial expertise".
According to his Linkedin profile, Mr Turmore is a "multi-award winning Board Level Managing Director with a proven track record of leading large complex business transformation, designing business strategy, delivering sustained growth and increased shareholder value".
