Speaking exclusively to ifa, Mr Johns said he looks forward to working with FPA chair Marisa Broome.
“My immediate focus will be on pushing for open communication and more transparency, perhaps using online platforms to create a real community feel, and reaching out to vulnerable or at-risk advisers and communities,” Mr Johns said.
“I am sure the focus will be achieving real results and offering support to our colleagues and the industry, so Australians keep entrusting us with their critical life decisions.
“Finally, I am thankful and grateful for the massive community support I received and to all those who voted and supported me with encouragement.”
