Sesame Bankhall Group announces changes to executive management team

Sesame Bankhall Group has announced that Richard Howells and Ross Liston (pictured above) will take on expanded roles within the executive management team.

Richard moves from his current role as managing director for Sesame Network to become the group’s chief operating officer.

In his new position, he will oversee the delivery of services to over 11,000 advisers, and will be responsible for the future development of the Group’s IT, digital and data systems.

Ross, who is currently managing director of Bankhall and PMS Mortgage Club, has been promoted to the group’s managing director for distribution.

He will lead relationship management and client engagement activity across all three brands: Sesame, Bankhall, and PMS.

The role will also include responsibility for Sesame Network, along with the group’s marketing and events teams.

Richard and Ross will continue to report into the group’s chief executive officer, Michele Golunska.

Jim Kelly, group business development director, will leave Sesame Bankhall Group as a result of this reorganisation.

Commenting on the changes, Michele said: “Our purpose and goal is to help bring greater resilience and profitable growth to advisory firms, who themselves continue to focus on delivering good customer outcomes.

“To achieve this, we’ll broaden the suite of propositions we offer and further expand our consultancy support, to help firms run more successful businesses that are compliant, efficient, and digitally-enabled. 

“All of this is underpinned by strong partner relationships and client engagement. 

“Today’s changes are an important step in helping Sesame Bankhall Group to realise its future ambitions, and I would like to congratulate Richard and Ross on their expanded roles.”

Michele also thanked Jim Kelly for his contribution during his time with the business and wished him well for the future.
