In a career spanning 25 years, Woods has previously worked at Pink Home Loans and Linear Mortgage network. He will take up the role of business development director in February.
Woods will report into Graves, working with firms to help them develop and achieve their business objectives.
Sesame has appointed two additional business development managers and two regional sales managers to allow it to deliver face-to-face adviser support to firms operating within the group’s PMS Mortgage Club and appointed representative network.
Graves said Sesame had ambitious plans to enhance the service it provided to firms and this additional expertise and support reflected that.
“Jeff has extensive industry experience in both the mortgage and life protection markets, and he will be instrumental in ensuring our plans for growth are successful through developing strong partnerships with firms. We are very pleased that these talented individuals have chosen to join our team at an exciting time for our rejuvenated business.”
Mark Graves joined Sesame in December, two months after The Right Mortgage and Protection Network announced Graves would join them as a shareholder of the business after leaving the Pink network where he had worked for three years.
