FEIFA (Federation of European IFAs) has reorganised its Board, with David Vacani becoming the new FEIFA Chairman.
At the Federation’s recent AGM, the Board roles came up for election, or re-election, based on the three-year cycle within its Constitution.
All existing Board Members were re-elected. The existing Chairman, John Westwood had decided to stand down from the role but remains on the Board and David Vacani moves from his Director role to the Chairman’s position.
Chris Marriott remains as Vice-Chairman and Treasurer, and Jason O’Connell as Secretary. Paul Stanfield has also been retained as CEO.
“I would personally like to thank John for his work and input over the last few years in the Chairman’s role – and, of course, to thank Chris and Jason too, for their continued work on behalf of FEIFA,” Stanfield stated. “I would obviously also like to say thank you to David for his past work and wish him all the best in his new role.”
Given the continuity on the Board, Stanfield expects it will be pretty much “business as usual” for the next 3 year-term.
