Appointment of Chief Operating Officer
I am delighted to inform you that we have now appointed Mr David Perceval to be our new Chief Operating Officer.
David has an impressive Curriculum Vitae and comes to Radford highly recommended by the many people we have spoken to. He is currently the Chief Operating Officer at the Australian Academy of Science, a position he has held for the past three years. Prior to that he was the Assistant Director (Development and COO) and Chief Financial Officer at the National Gallery of Australia for eight years. For approximately ten years prior to that, he held accounting roles at KPMG and Walter Turnbull.
David’s professional qualifications include the degree of Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting), he is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, holds a Certificate of Public Practice, and he is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in New Zealand and Australia.
David is also a Radford parent, with Jamie currently in Year 10, and Madeleine a graduate of the Class of 2017.
David will take up his role at Radford on Monday 6 January 2020, but is hoping to spend some time with Acting COO Peter Gunning, before Peter concludes his appointment on Friday 13 December.
