Atlanta, Ga. (Jan. 14, 2004) -- The Financial Planning Association announced that its executive director, Janet G. McCallen, has parted ways with the association.

Associate executive director Marvin W. Tuttle, CAE, replaces McCallen as executive director. Tuttle currently serves as publisher/editor of the FPA’s flagship publication, Journal of Financial Planning.

McCallen has served as the 28,000-member group’s executive director since the January 2000 merger of the International Association for Financial Planning and the Institute of Certified Financial Planners that formed the FPA. Prior to that, she served for 10 years as the executive director of the IAFP.

McCallen said that the FPA’s plans to shutter its Atlanta office by the end of 2004 had “a minor effect on the timing,” but said her decision to leave was unrelated to the move, which was announced in November as part of cost-cutting efforts.

“My plans are to rest and reflect and figure out what I’m going to do when I grow up,” McCallen told WebCPA.

In a statement announcing her departure, McCallen said, “I have been privileged to work with many exceptional individuals throughout the years, and I am very grateful for that. I will continue to desire and believe in the FPA’s success and prosperity. And I know that with the insight and guidance of the FPA’s Board and staff, that will happen.”

“Janet has provided the IAFP and the FPA with exemplary service for 14 years,” said FPA president Elizabeth Jetton. “The FPA Board of Directors extends its deep appreciation for her service and leadership in moving the association and the financial planning profession forward.”
