The FPA has appointed a former director of the TPB as the new chair of its charitable foundation Future2.
In a statement, the FPA said it had appointed Julie Berry, who recently stepped down from her role as a financial adviser board representative at the TPB, as the new chair of the foundation following the departure of previous chair Petra Churcher.
The association said it had also elevated Aspire Retire Financial Services co-founder Olivia Maragna as the Future2 Foundation’s new deputy chair.
Commenting on the appointment, Ms Berry said she was honoured to be given the position at Future2, which supports young Australians in financial, social or physical hardship.
“2020 has been an extraordinary year, commencing with the devastating impact of the bushfires and the development of the COVID-19 pandemic,” she said.
“Our local communities and charity partners are experiencing unprecedented challenges and Future2 is committed to engaging financial planning professionals around Australia to support the initiatives that improve the lives of young Australians in need.”
The FPA said that current board members Peter Bobbin, Dante De Gori, Giles Gunesekera, Alison Henderson, Hugh Humphrey and Pene Lovett would continue to serve on the foundation’s board.
