Former AFA CEO joins Stanford Brown board
Financial advice boutique Stanford Brown has announced former AFA chief executive Brad Fox has been appointed to its board.
Sister publication ifa confirmed earlier this week that Mr Fox will take up a non-executive director role on the self-licensed firm’s board of directors as it looks to expand its footprint beyond NSW.
The Melbourne-based former AFA boss stood down in March after four years in the position, handing the reins to former Zurich executive Philip Kewin.
Mr Fox will retain his role as a consultant to the AFA on professionalisation projects alongside his new board director duties at Stanford Brown.
In a statement issued today, Stanford Brown chairman David Brown pointed to Mr Fox’s leadership skills and industry knowledge.
“I am delighted to welcome Brad to Stanford Brown. During his four-year tenure as CEO of the AFA, he showed real courage and leadership. Brad’s appointment is the first stage of our longer-term strategy of creating an independent and diversified board. I admire Brad’s character, work ethic and strategic thinking, which will add significant value to our organisation,” Mr Brown said.
Describing Stanford Brown as one of the country’s “elite” firms, Mr Fox said he anticipated bringing a new perspective to the board.
“We share a passion to improve the lives of Australians through the highest quality, non-conflicted advice delivered with uncompromising standards of client experience. I look forward to bringing another dimension to their strategic thinking and expansion plans.”
