WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Financial Services Institute (FSI) today announced the election of Adam Antoniades, President of Cetera Financial Group, as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors, and Richard Lampen, President and CEO of Ladenburg Thalmann, as the new FSI PAC Board Chair. Antoniades has served as PAC Board Chair throughout 2014 before his election to the Vice Chair role.
“Our Board of Directors is strong and diverse, with small, medium and large firms all represented,” said FSI President & CEO Dale Brown. “The Board’s strength is reflective of the overall strength of our organization.
“Adam has proven himself a leader and dedicated servant to our members during his extensive time on the Board,” Brown continued. “He will make an effective and passionate Vice Chair this year and Chair in 2015. Our members will benefit from his vision and passion. Dick is a leader on the Board and, like Adam, a leader when it comes to his firm’s support of the FSI PAC and its critical advocacy role. He is a natural to step up as PAC Chair and will prove an effective leader of our efforts.”
