David brings to the post a lifetime of business experience in an international context. He has served as Churchwarden of St. Paul’s, Tervuren and as Honorary Secretary to the Council of St Paul’s. He currently serves as Honorary Treasurer of the Anglican Council for Belgium, the Archdeaconry of North West Europe and the Office of the Anglican Bishop in Europe.
Since he retired from his management role in the chemical industry, David has become involved in executive coaching, helping younger managers grow into their roles and develop better teamwork. He trained as a spiritual director with SPIDIR (link is external) in the Diocese of Southwark, so he brings the requisite spirituality, breadth of vision, and experience of dealing with a range of people that are needed for this senior post.
