The Association of Financial Advisers (AFA) has appointed Kate McCallum as national chair of AFA Inspire.
McCallum is the co-chief executive and founder of boutique advisory firm, Multiforte Financial Services, and held executive positions within major financial services organisations.
McCallum was also awarded the AFA Female Excellence in Advice Award in 2014, and was a grand finalist in this year’s AFA Practice of the Year Award.
In announcing her appointment, McCallum acknowledged the previous chair, Di Charman, for her work in the role, and founder of AFA Inspire, Deb Ken, for her support and engagement.
“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,” said AFA chief executive, Phillip Kewin.
