Sesame Bankhall Group has appointed Alex Beavis to the newly created role of mortgage and later life lending propositions director, as part of its commitment to expand services for advisers.

Beavis joins from his role as head of mortgage products at Skipton Building Society, where he has worked for eight years in a range of management roles.

He will take up the role on 14 June 2021 and will be part of Sesame Bankhall Group’s newly formed propositions team, which will drive the development and growth of new services for advisers across the mortgage, protection, and wealth markets.

Beavis will work alongside Emma Thomson, who recently joined Sesame Bankhall Group as head of protection and general insurance propositions.

Both will report into the group’s new propositions director, who will be announced over the coming weeks.

Michele Golunska, chief executive officer at Sesame Bankhall Group, said: “Our Group facilitated over £40bn of mortgages last year, giving us a strong market position, however we aim to broaden our range of services and further expand our support.

“Our new propositions team will be key to this, by helping to develop the next generation of services for PMS Mortgage Club, Sesame, and Bankhall members. I’m delighted that Alex will be part of this important work.

“As an award-winning business leader, Alex has strong industry credentials and a proven track record in the development and delivery of innovative customer focussed mortgage products and propositions. Alex will be another welcome addition to our growing and talented team.”

Beavis added: “Sesame Bankhall Group is a market-leading business, with a focus on investing further in a range of new innovative services for advisers.

“This includes expanding its reach in areas such as later life lending.

“It’s an exciting time and I’m looking forward to helping the Group and its members to profit through the delivery of valuable new adviser services that enhance customer experience.”
