FPA chief executive Mark Rantall will step down from his role in March.

He will be replaced by FPA policy and conduct general manager Dante De Gori.

Rantall will be a non-executive director at the FPA.

During the opening of the FPA Professionals Congress in Brisbane this morning, FPA board chair Neil Kendall said: “After a rigorous executive search the board’s choice was based on De Gori having the most suitable blend of expertise, experience and passion to lead the FPA during the next chapter of its journey”.

The appointment of an internal candidate is a first in the FPA’s history and De Gori would be the second chief executive to hold the certified financial planner (CFP) designation in the FPA’s history, after Rantall.

“In five years, Mark Rantall has led a team that effectively transformed the FPA into the leading professional body it is today – trailblazing the journey to higher educational and advice standards; tirelessly campaigning to ensure both members and consumers benefit from proposed industry and government reforms; and growing both the CFP brand and number of CFP professionals in Australia,” Kendall said.

“The board recognised Mark’s achievements today with the award of life membership of the FPA.

“We are looking forward to further acknowledging Mark’s contribution prior to him stepping down in February 2016,” he added.

De Gori joined the FPA as policy and government relations general manager in 2010.
