CFA UK is pleased to welcome the appointment of three new members to its Board following the Society’s AGM on 28 November 2017. The new members joining the board are Marshall Bailey, CFA, Fraser Lundie, CFA and Lindsey Matthews, CFA. Says Gerry Fowler, CFA, chair of CFA UK’s Board: ‘We are delighted that Marshall, Fraser and Lindsey are joining the Board, but we are very sorry to say goodbye to Steven Major, Andreas Uttermann and David Bertocchi. Each has made a real contribution to our work.’
Thanking the departing board members, Gerry commented: ‘Steven has overseen the Investment Committee. Andreas was the first chair of our Advisory Council and laid the groundwork for our Ethical Leadership Programme. And David, both in his role on the Education Committee, most recently as vice chair and as a regular representative for the society at CFA Institute meetings has done a huge amount for us. We’re very grateful to all of them and will miss their contributions. All of these people are volunteers. They all thought that they could give something back to CFA Institute and that it might be fun to do so. I’m confident that Steven, Andreas and David have enjoyed their roles and I know that Marsh, Lindsey and Fraser are looking forward to getting involved.'
Nominees for consideration by CFA UK’s members at the society’s AGM are selected by the society’s Nominating Committee. The committee takes into account the diversity of skills and experience that the Board requires and also seeks to represent the diversity of the society’s membership. We strongly welcome nominations from all members and are keen to receive more nominations from women and from members from diverse ethnicities.
