Former Association of Financial Advisers (AFA) chief executive Brad Fox has joined the board of a Melbourne-based advice firm.
Fox joins Tribeca Financial as a non-executive chair to help lead the firm's next growth phase.
Tribeca Financial chief executive Ryan Watson said Fox's experience and leadership, and his passion for the financial advice profession will assist the firm moving forward with its ultimate goal to positively affect more people's lives.
Fox said Tribeca Financial comprises a highly energetic, professional team and "everything they do is about helping people live their good life."
"My role is to guide their vision through strategy, structure and focus from which to launch their next wave of growth," Fox said.
He added financial advice firms need to have high conviction about what they believe will represent great financial advice in the future as the paradigm for advice continues to change rapidly.
"Tribeca Financial have the agility and imagination to identify and capture the growth opportunities that are emerging," he added.
Fox stepped down as chief executive of the AFA in March and handed over the reins to Philip Kewin, but continues to serve as a consultant to the association.
Fox's leadership over his four-year tenure helped the industry traverse through a tumultuous period of reforms, including FoFA, MySuper, professional standards and the Life Insurance Framework.
Fox is also part of ASIC's 18-member Financial Services and Credit Panel (FSCP); a team of industry professionals the regulator recently setup to draw on the expertise of members who will participate in administrative hearings and assess the suitability of banning orders.
He is also a non-executive director of North Sydney-based wealth management firm Stanford Brown where he helps shape long-term strategies and expansion plans.
