The FPA announced Wednesday that it elected Dennis Moore, the chief operating officer of Quest Capital Management in Dallas, as its one-year term president.
He succeeds the 2021 elect, Skip Schweiss, the former managing director of retirement plan services and advisor advocacy for TD Ameritrade Institutional. He left TD Ameritrade, which is being acquired by Charles Schwab, in August.
“I’m excited to join the FPA volunteer executive leadership team to enhance the association’s value, support the next generation of financial planners, and strengthen our voice in the profession. I look forward to advancing efforts with those in the financial planning community to change the tomorrows of our members and those they serve,” Moore said in a statement.
Moore has been an FPA member since 2002, serving in various roles from the local FPA level to now the national level. He’s currently finishing up his three-year term on the FPA Board of Directors.
In other related news, the FPA has added to its board of directors. The 14-member board now includes three newbies: George A. Fernández, vice president of practice management at Mariner Wealth Advisors in Overland, Kan.; Lisa Kirchenbauer, president, chief compliance officer and senior advisor at Omega Wealth Management in Arlington, Va.; and Paul J. Brahim, managing director and senior VP at Wealth Enhancement Group in Pittsburgh.
The FPA Board of Directors are responsible for setting the vision and direction for the association, according to the release.
All three new directors and Moore all begin on Jan. 1, 2021.
