The Association of Financial Advisers has chosen a new national chair to its body for female advisers, AFA Inspire.
Kate McCallum, co-CEO and founder of boutique advisory firm, Multiforte Financial Services, will be taking on the role.
AFA CEO Philip Kewin said Ms McCallum is well respected in the AFA community, having won the body’s Female Excellence in Advice Award in 2014 along with her firm being a grand finalist in this year’s AFA Practice of the Year Award.
Before establishing Multiforte, Ms McCallum held executive positions within major financial services organisations.
“I love the energy and atmosphere of the AFA and AFA Inspire, so I am very excited to accept the role. I am grateful to the leaders who have made AFA Inspire the force it is today,” Ms McCallum said.
“I particularly wish to acknowledge and thank Di Charman for her work as National Chair over the past years and Deb Kent, founder of AFA Inspire, for her continued support and engagement. There’s a distinct vibrancy about the AFA Inspire community, and I can’t wait to begin planning our forward strategy.”
“Kate brings significant leadership experience to this role and I am confident that she will make an invaluable contribution to the AFA and to AFA Inspire,” Mr Kerwin said.
