Day, who will report to managing director of global partnerships Paul Moody, will also be responsible for promoting CFA Institute offerings, products, and services into EMEA markets.
“Dana’s deep understanding of CFA Institute, having previously spent more than five years with us, and more importantly her expertise in strategic relationship management means that she is well suited for this position,” said Moody. “She has a passion for the EMEA region and will be instrumental in leading this region and its many stakeholders.”

“This is a highly significant addition for McCarthy Denning as we build our profile and client base across professional and financial services partnerships,” CEO Warren Wooldridge said, adding that “Tina is without doubt one of the UK’s leading partnership law practitioners.”
