The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards has named three new members to its board of directors for 2010-a move that also adds an additional seat to the governing body.
The new board members, who start their four-year terms on January 1, are Susan R. Meisinger, former president and CEO of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM); Richard P. Rojeck, managing director of the Pacific Southwest Regional Planning Group of Sagemark Consulting; and Richard Sincere, founder, chairman and CEO of Sincere & Co., which connects fee-based advisors with large financial management institutions.
The new directors will replace board Chairman Marilyn Capelli Dimitroff and director James A. Kaitz, whose terms are up at the end of the year. The third addition represents a new seat, bringing the board's membership from 13 to 14. The total includes one non-voting member: CFP Board CEO Kevin Keller.
Meisinger retired from SHRM-the world's largest professional association devoted to human resource management-in 2008 after six years at the organization. During her tenure, SHRM membership grew from 170,000 to 245,000.
Rojeck has been a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) since 1985 and involved in financial planning for almost 30 years. He has been with Sagemark, a fee-based financial planning firm affiliated with Lincoln Financial Advisors, since 1980. From 1993 to 1999, he served on the board of the International Association for Financial Planning, which merged with the Institute of Certified Financial Planners in 2000 to form the Financial Planning Association (FPA).
Sincere writes a bimonthly column for NAPFA Advisor, a publication of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), and serves on the advisory boards of the Journal of Wealth Management and Inside Money.
