An African American woman has been chosen for the first time as chair-elect of the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, the organization announced today.
Kamila McDonnough, president and partner of GRID 202 Partners, an RIA based in Washington, D.C., and North Carolina, will become chair of the CFP board in 2022.
“Kamila has significant experience as a leader in the financial planning profession and I value tremendously her expertise and insight, which have been very apparent during her time on CFP’s Board of Directors,” said CFP Chair Jack Brod, in a statement.
Before Grid 202, which McDonnough joined in February, she was with Rutledge Financial Partners as a wealth manager and Dimensional Fund Advisors as a financial advisor. She began her career in the business with Vanguard, where she managed assets for ultra-high net worth individuals as well as endowments and institutions.
