An advice practice head has put more transparency and open communication within the Financial Planning Association of Australia as an “immediate focus” following his election to the board.
The founder and chief executive of Health & Finance Integrated, William Johns, was won election to the FPA board, alongside David Sharpe of Globe Financial Planning and Alison Henderson of SWA Financial Planning were also re-elected as board directors.
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.”
All three elected directors will be appointed at the annual general meeting on 27 November.
