Aussie adviser to become MDRT president
The Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) will have its first Australian president, with the appointment of a Brisbane-based financial adviser to the global association’s executive committee.
In a communication to members – seen by ifa – the MDRT Oceania chapter revealed that 27-year MDRT member Ross Vanderwolf has been appointed to the executive committee and will become president in four years’ time.
“Australia will have [its] first MDRT president,” the communication proclaimed.
Mr Vanderwolf is a Certified Financial Planner and principal of Rothgard Financial Partners in Brisbane – an authorised representative of AMP-aligned Charter Financial Planning.
He has held a number of leadership roles within the MDRT network including trustee of the MDRT Foundation Board, member of the finance committee and divisional vice president of the 2014 membership division.
MDRT Oceania chair Ross Hultgren said the appointment is an ”amazing recognition of the value of Australian Advisers in the international arena of financial services”.
