The Financial Services Institute, a trade group representing independent broker-dealers and advisors, has elected two new IBD execs to its 2014 board.

The two new members of the FSI Board of Directors are Raymond James Financial Services President Scott Curtis and Cambridge Investment Research President Amy Webber, the company's presumed heir apparent. The appointments bring the total board count to 16 members.

“Our advocacy agenda benefits firms and advisors of all sizes and business models, and our board of directors continues to reflect that diversity,” said FSI President and CEO Dale Brown in a press release announcing a move. “Our directors volunteer their time, resources and expertise in support of our mission of advocacy for a healthier, more business friendly regulatory environment for our members and their clients to thrive.”

In addition to the new directors, FSI also named Valerie Brown, CEO of Cetera Financial Group, as the board's new vice chairwoman. She will serve a one-year term and then become board chair in 2015. FSI also elected Adam Antoniades, president and CEO of First Allied, to serve as FSI PAC board chair.

Both of these board leadership positions roll up to the FSI Executive Committee.

All the board changes take effect on Jan. 1, 2014.
