Leadership changes at ifa magazine
Sterling Publishing has announced changes to the editorial team at ifa magazine, with a new editor taking the reins from July.
Alice Uribe has been announced as the incoming editor of ifa and will head up editorial for the market-leading print and digital titles.
Ms Uribe is currently ifa deputy editor and has many years’ experience covering financial services across mainstream and trade titles including ninemsn, The Australian, Financial Standard, InvestorDaily and InvestorWeekly.
Current editor Aleks Vickovich will relocate to the United States in July 2015 and take up a Contributing Editor position at ifa, reporting on trends in the US and global wealth management and fintech industries.
“Over the past two years the independent and non-aligned movement has gathered a lot of steam, in no small part thanks to ifa’s repositioning as an advocate for market competition and non-conflicted advice,” Mr Vickovich said.
“It has been a privilege to oversee a period of important disruption for the financial advice industry and I look forward to an ongoing relationship with the ifa community. I have no doubt the future of advice is bright.”
