FPA appoints new FPEC chair

— 1 minute read

The Financial Planning Association has named University of Western Sydney associate professor Sharon Taylor as the new Financial Planning Education Council (FPEC) chair.

Sharon Taylor will replace outgoing chair Mark Brimble, who stepped down from the role February amid concerns that his employment as a professor with Griffith University and position on the FASEA board may lead to a conflict of interest.

FPEC is an ‘independent body’ established by the FPA to assess and accredit higher education pathways as entry points to the CFP program, which developed the approved education pathways that were subsequently adopted by FASEA in its first guidance release.


Mr Brimble was subsequently appointed interim managing director of FASEA, after chief executive Deen Sanders announced his departure from the government organisation.

The University of Western Sydney recently announced the launch of a graduate diploma for advisers, which has been “fully accredited” by FPEC to meet FASEA education standards.
