The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards’ Board said Tuesday that it has elected two new members specializing in securities regulation and risk and compliance.
Roberta Karmel, the first woman to be appointed a commissioner at the Securities and Exchange Commission — serving in that capacity from September 1977 to February 1980 — is a leading authority on securities regulation.
She is the Centennial Professor of Law and co-director of the Dennis J. Block Center for the Study of International Business Law at Brooklyn Law School in New York.
Karmel becomes the fourth public member of the CFP Board of Directors.
Alexander Rozman heads financial crime compliance and is compliance counsel for CLS Bank International, a leading global multi-currency settlement provider based in New York and London.
“With enforcement of the new CFP Code and Standards beginning June 30, 2020, these two new members will bring deep, invaluable experience and insights to ensure that our new Code and Standards is relevant and credible to the public and fair to CFP professionals,” said Jack Brod, CFP, chair of the CFP Board of Directors.
“We are honored to welcome two members of such stature,” added Douglas King, CFP, chair-elect of the CFP Board of Directors and chair of the Nominating Committee. “They will help strengthen CFP Board’s role in the financial planning profession as it enters its sixth decade.”
