FPA chief executive

FPA chief executive Dante De Gori has announced his intention to step down from his position at the end of 2021 after 12 years with the association.

Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) chief executive Dante De Gori has announced plans to step down from his position at the end of 2021.

De Gori’s move will end a 12-year stint with the association, where he initially started as head of policy and government relations, before also taking professional standards on board, and then being appointed as chief executive in March 2016, taking over from Mark Rantall.

“I will forever be grateful to everyone who has supported the FPA, it has been both an honour and privilege to have served in this role,” he said.

“I would like to thank the FPA team for their dedication and passion in supporting our members and the profession; our chapters and committees; the board and our partners and, of course, our FPA members who are the true champions of the advice profession and for whom I will always remain their biggest advocate.

“With the FPA’s five-year MAC [members, advocacy and consumers] strategy in place and the launch of the FPA policy platform, Affordable Advice Sustainable Profession, the time is right for a new custodian to lead this amazing organisation.”

Following almost 12 years in total with the body, with nearly six years as chief executive, De Gori made an exceptional contribution to the financial planning profession, according to FPA chair Marisa Broome.

“Dante has always put the profession of financial planning and the FPA members first. Dante will leave a lasting positive legacy at the FPA,” Broome said.

De Gori’s successor has not been named and the FPA board has started a search for his replacement.
