Dale Brown is the president and CEO of the Financial Services Institute (FSI), an advocacy organization for independent broker-dealers and independent financial advisors. Established in January 2004, FSI has over 120 broker-dealer members and over 35,000 financial advisor members.

Dale brings over 20 years of association management experience to FSI, most recently as the associate executive director of FPA. For IAFP, one of FPA’s predecessor organizations, he led the government relations program and the broker-dealer program, which grew to more than 130 member firms by the time FPA was created in January 2000. Dale also led the successful fight in the mid-1990s against the IRS’s attempts to force broker-dealers to reclassify independent contractor representatives as statutory employees. In both IAFP and FPA, Dale played a critical role in the senior management team and brings broad leadership experience to FSI in his role as founding president & CEO.

FSI’s mission is to create a healthier regulatory environment for independent broker-dealers and their affiliated independent financial advisors through aggressive and effective advocacy, education, and public awareness. For more information, visit financialservices.org.
