The Institute of Financial Planning has recruited Sam Rees-Adam as its new director of professional standards.
Rees-Adam previously worked as a director at the Financial Services Skills Council, now the Financial Skills Partnership. She has most recently been running her own consultancy business.
Her role will encompass the responsibilities previously held by former education director Sue Leech who retired earlier this year.
Rees-Adam says: “I’m looking forward to this challenging and exciting role and welcome the chance to work with so many professional and dedicated financial planners and paraplanners.”
IFP chief executive Steve Gazzard says: “Our thanks go to Sue for the fantastic work she has done for the IFP and the financial planning profession over the past few years. For the future, Sam not only brings significant subject matter expertise but also has experience of operating and influencing at board level.”
