Wildgoose previously worked at Sesame Bankhall Group for over 11 years, which he left as head of network recruitment in January this year.

John Cupis, managing director of mortgages and protection at Sesame, said: “Stephen’s experience and expertise will prove invaluable as we look to build on the growth of the network through the recruitment of high-quality advice practices and advisers committed to providing their clients with the best possible outcomes.”

“With a unique structure that gives both new and existing advisers a pathway to ownership of the business; Openwork stands apart in the market.
