Fintech firm Map My Plan has appointed a former Netwealth Advice general manager to its advisory board, who officially joins at about the same time as former federal Labor politician, Bernie Ripoll.
Speaking to ifa, Map My Plan founder Paul Feeney said Simon Micallef has recently become a member of the firm's advisory board.
Mr Micallef is currently a director at business consultancy firm, FinFocus. He was previously general manager of Netwealth Advice Group before departing, following a merger, after three years with the company.
“He’s been involved in a lot of dealer groups and financial planning firms for many years. He’s going to bring a great deal of expertise and networks to the team,” Mr Feeney said.
Mr Micallef joins around the same time as Bernie Ripoll, author of the 2009 Ripoll Report which led to the FOFA reforms in place today. Mr Ripoll was appointed as director of the Map My Plan board.
Mr Feeney said the appointments come as Map My Plan seeks to establish partnerships with industry super funds and financial advisers.
