The Institute of Financial Planning has appointed Jane Wheeler, principal at Direction Financial Planning, as president of the organisation for the next two years.
It has also appointed Barry Horner, managing director of Paradigm Norton, as its vice president.
The two-year appointments will take effect at the IFP’s annual meeting and conference on 11 October.
Wheeler is a certified financial planner who has worked in the industry for many years, initially as an IFA and later as a financial planner and wealth manager.
Horner is also a certified financial planner with a background in accountancy.
Nick Cann, chief executive of the IFP, says: “Jane and Barry are taking up their appointments at a very exciting time for the institute. The public demand for, and awareness of, professional financial planning is continuing to grow apace. This means that our role as the industry’s national body becomes ever more important.”
