The Chairman Arthur Vincent and the Board of Protestant Aid are pleased to announce the appointment of David Webb as Chief Executive in succession to Robin George who retired recently after 27 years’ service.

A member of Kilternan Parish, David (41) is a qualified Solicitor and partner in the law firm Whitney Moore. Educated at St. Andrew’s College and UCD, he also holds a Higher Diploma in Business & Information Technology from UCD.

He takes up his position in October and will assume responsibility for the various charitable activities of Protestant Aid, under the direction of the Board, including the sheltered housing at Brabazon Trust and St John’s House on Merrion Road.

His appointment comes at an opportune time, with Protestant Aid undertaking a €10 million re-development at St John’s House (in conjunction with the Trustees of St Mary’s House and the Molyneux Home) to create a 56-bed nursing home.
