The Financial Planning Association of Australia (FPA) has appointed Dale Boucher as new Chair of Conduct Review Commission (CRC) while outgoing chair, Graham McDonald, will remain a CRC member and deputy chair.
Boucher, who served previously as CRC deputy chair, has extensive experience spanning more than four decades which included his time as the Australian Government Solicitor, a partner at Minter Ellison and the chairman of the tax practitioners board.
Additionally, he also served as a chair of the Mortgage and Finance Association of Australia Tribunal, and most recently the Commissioner for uniform legal services regulation and chief executive of the Legal Services Council.
“Both Dale and Graham remain committed to the CRC and upholding the high standing of members, and we’re delighted to welcome Dale as new chair,” the FPA’s chair, Marisa Broome said.
McDonald’s decision to step down was the result of his family circumstances.
