The Institute of Financial Planning has appointed Dunham Financial Services managing director Rebecca Taylor as its vice president.
Taylor takes over as vice president from Bruce Wilson, who has decided to step down from the post after changes to his personal situation. Wilson had resigned from his post as managing director of Helm Godfrey in January 2011 and now spends the majority of his time abroad.
Taylor will take over the IFP presidency from current president Marlene Shalton at the IFP Conference in October, for a two year term of office.
IFP chief executive Nick Cann says: “The commitment of time and effort that is now part of the IFP president’s role is quite considerable. As Bruce Wilson now spends up to 75 per cent of his time abroad, we fully appreciate his decision to step down.”
Neil Bailey has also stood down from the IFP board to focus on the demands that his business Fortitude Financial Planning is now placing him. The IFP says this will leave a place for three new directors to be elected from the membership at the annual general meeting in October.
