David White, the Chief Operating Officer of the Anglican Consultative Council, has stepped down as part of the ongoing restructuring of the Anglican Consultative Council, which was announced earlier this month.
Prior to his appointment in February 2017, David White had held a number of senior managerial appointments in leading UK and international charities, including a development charity working in southern Africa, travel health specialists InterHealth Worldwide, Y Care International, and a number of adult and children’s hospices.
In his role at the ACC David was responsible for organising two in-person Primates’ Meetings in Canterbury and Jordan and the first online Primates’ Meeting; as well as a meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Hong Kong.
The Vice Chair of the Anglican Consultative Council, Canon Maggie Swinson, is leading the Trustees’ sub-group overseeing the re-organisation. She said: “The Trustees and Secretary General of the Anglican Communion thank David for all he had done during nearly four years of dedicated service. I would also like, personally, to thank David and wish him well for the future. ”
David White commented: “It has been my great privilege to serve the Communion over nearly four years and to have engaged with colleagues and partners across the world whose ministries are truly inspiring and a blessing to those that they serve. My prayers for the global communion and all who serve within it will continue.”
