David was elected as the Treasurer of Masorti Judaism in September 2020 following three years as a member of the finance committee. He grew up in London in a traditional United Synagogue family but has been an active member of NNLS for over 20 years. David is married to Lisa and they have three nearly grown-up sons, all of whom have been active members of Noam. David is a statistician by training (if not by temperament) and currently heads the Essex Centre for Data Analytics, championing the use of analytics across the public sector. Previous roles have given him an esoteric specialism in public sector financial and performance data alongside a pretty good knowledge of accounting and financial management for a non-accountant.
