Update on FPI Leadership and New Strategy

09 January 2012 Financial Planning Institute of Southern Africa (FPI)

The Board of Directors of the Financial Planning Institute of Southern Africa(FPI ) are pleased to announce that the institute have concluded on a few months of strategy review work with exciting changes being set for implementation as of next year. Following the completion of this new FPI strategy, Gerhardt Meyer will be stepping down as the FPI Chairperson effective as of 28 February 2012. “I am personally very pleased that we have concluded this very important work earlier than initially anticipated. The board had, at the end of my original term as Chairperson in May 2011, asked me to stay on until the completion of this work, which we had initially anticipated would take a lot longer to finalise.” says Gerhardt.

The board will execute its succession plan and name the current Chairperson-Elect, Solly Keetse, CFP® the successor of Mr Meyer for the remainder of Gerhardt’s term of office which will end in June 2013. Gerhardt Meyer added “It has been a pleasure and a privilege to chair the FPI board. I wish to thank all my fellow directors for their steadfast commitment and valued contribution throughout my tenure. I would also like to thank the staff of the FPI for their support and dedication. As I have served with Mr Keetse on the board of FPI and other structures for many years, I know that he is more than capable of leading the institute during this time when we prepare to roll out a new FPI strategy.”

“Gerhardt’s extraordinary vision and leadership have been highly valuable to the FPI over the years, said Solly Keetse, CFP®, Chairperson-Elect of the FPI. On behalf of the directors of FPI I would like to thank him for enormous contribution towards making FPI the premier professional body in the financial services industry. I wish him the best of luck in all his endeavours and look forward to building onto the solid foundation he has created for the FPI.”

Godfrey Nti, FPI CEO, “Gerhardt has played a significant leadership role in FPI’s growth over the past couple of years. It has been a great pleasure to have worked with him and on behalf of the FPI I would like to wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
