Bill will guide KESHO through the next stages of its Credit Union business development and help the company to further understand the needs and the development potential of the Credit Union sector. The appointment will also ensure KESHO continues to successfully navigate its way through the different tiers of the credit union opportunity, understanding the language, the personalities and the unique dynamic that comes from the credit union sector.

KESHO strategic advisor Bill Hall said: Something I feel absolutely passionate about is the delivery of fit-for-purpose financial services for everyone, regardless of where they are from or their financial situation. Credit unions provide huge support and comfort to those who are excluded from society because of their level of education, their ethnicity, or simply because they have not been given the tools or help to manage their finances properly. Many of these people often shy away from the mainstream banking system and I am very proud to be part of industry that is here to help them with their finances and give them a chance to plan for a more secure financial future.”

His passion for increased equality within the Credit Union and Housing sectors is undoubted and I look forward to working closely with him as KESHO continues to grow.
