Share Article

The International Association of Registered Financial Consultants (IARFC) announces the election of J. Christopher Dixon, RFC® of Black Harbor Wealth Management, Seneca, SC and Michael Jay Markey, Jr. MRFC of Legacy Financial Network in Kentwood, MI to the Association Board of Directors. They will be assuming their duties immediately at the quarterly Board Meeting scheduled for December 12.

Getting together at the Biltmore in person builds relationships that bond both entities after everyone goes back home to their own offices and practices.. IARFC Chairman H. Stephen Bailey.

“The members of the Board of Directors are the face and the leaders of the Association,” explains IARFC Chairman H. Stephen Bailey, MRFC. “We need new ideas, new thinkers, enthusiastic participants and experienced counsel all rolled into one group.”

Dixon has been the CEO of Black Harbor Wealth Management and engaged in executive and financial management for more than 21 years. His vision of promoting the Association includes speaking at trade functions, setting up booths at different IMO marketing events and encouraging his network of financial professionals to be part of the IARFC.

Markey is co-founder of Legacy Financial Network (3 locations) and has been an MDRT member since 2010 and Top of the Table member in 2014, 2016 and 2017. As a Board Member, he hopes to advance the Association’s reach by furthering the prestige of the IARFC’s designation – specifically increasing the awareness of the MRFC designation.

The two newly elected Board Members will attend their first annual, in person Board Meeting to be held before the 2018 IARFC Biltmore Conference April 17 & 19 in Asheville, NC. There the Board is updated on IARFC policies and will discuss the path of the Association for 2018-2019.

“It is most important that both Chris and Michael feel comfortable working with the IARFC Board and the IARFC Team in Middletown,” reiterates Bailey. “Getting together at the Biltmore in person builds relationships that bond both entities after everyone goes back home to their own offices and practices. I am proud of our current Board and Team and look forward to meeting our newest additions soon.”

These new directors replace outgoing Board Members Isabel Cooper, RFC® and Jon Rogers, MRFC who have fulfilled their two consecutive terms of office. Cooper and Rogers have an outstanding record of contribution to the Ethics Committee and the office of Treasurer in addition to weighing in on IARFC general policy.

“Saying goodbye to these outstanding individuals is bittersweet,” continues Bailey. “I will miss their wisdom, their tenacity of purpose and the fun they bring to the table. Getting to work with them has been a privilege.”
