Sesame Bankhall Group director Keith Gilmour leaves

Sesame Bankhall Group business development director Keith Gilmour has left the firm after only joining in November last year, Money Marketing can reveal.

Gilmour joined Sesame Bankhall from Positive Solutions, where he was marketing director, as part of last year’s senior management restructure which also saw George Higginson join from Intrinsic as chief operating officer.
