Ex-Sesame chief George Higginson joins RBS


Former Sesame Bankhall Group chief executive George Higginson has joined Royal Bank of Scotland and NatWest on a consultancy basis.

He has been brought on board to advise the bank on its mortgage operation.

Higginson left Sesame in January 2014 following a management shake-up at the network.

Prior to his three years at Sesame, Higginson spent five years as operations director of Intrinsic Financial Services and, before that, he was operations director at Openwork for nine years.

Higginson says: “RBS has some interesting plans for its mortgage arm which attracted me to the role. This felt like the right time and place for me to come back to the market.”

RBS director of mortgages and protection Lloyd Cochrane says: “We are delighted to have George joining the team. His wealth of knowledge of the broker market in particular will be invaluable in helping us achieve our ambitious plans to continue growing our business.”
