Deacon David Palmer
David graduated in Financial Control at Lancaster University and is a Chartered Accountant and member of the Institute of Taxation and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. He worked at Director level in the Finance and Computer Services industries and moved into management development in 1990 running finance and general management programmes for major commercial organisations and several Universities. Since 2014 he has primarily concentrated on the volunteer role of Treasurer of the Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham.
After a life changing experience on an Alpha course, he became increasingly involved in Catholic Charismatic renewal. He was ordained a Permanent Deacon in 2007 and is now based at St Joseph the Worker Catholic Church in Coventry. He has many years of experience on the boards of charitable and educational institutions. He has been married over 40 years and has one daughter and four granddaughters. He played rugby for 25 years but injuries and age now restrict him to being a spectator.
