The newly formed Sesame Bankhall Group has appointed Mark Penton to the role of company director of its retail distribution implementation project.
Penton has held positions at Norwich Union and was the director of Beachcroft Regulatory Consulting and chief executive at Pass Ltd.
He takes up the role on 2 November and will report to Sesame Bankhall Group executive chairman Ivan Martin.
Martin says: "In light of the changes and challenges that the RDR will bring, it is essential we are able to provide the valuable support our customers will need to guide them through the transition.
"Mark's appointment demonstrates our commitment to this key business imperative."
Sesame Bankhall Group has also added to its senior team responsible for leading the business following the formation of the new group in October.
Michael Couzens, previously compliance director for Sesame, assumes responsibility for compliance and risk management in the expanded group and Mark Wadelin, previously Sesame's finance director, takes up the same role in the new group.
