Committed to impacting positively on the lives of people made poor

New ERD Relationships Manager, David Hughes

Posted on 01 July 2018

I am delighted to have joined Edmund Rice Development as Relationships Manager. My connection to the Edmund Rice Network was being educated for primary school at St. Fintans’s CBS Sutton, before being educated for secondary school by the Jesuits and then obtaining a degree in pure history from Trinity College Dublin.

For the last three years, I have been Chairperson of the Samaritans in Dublin, which is a suicide awareness non-profit organisation. Before that, my background was in the commercial sector, working in the wholesale grocery area in both Ireland and the United States. I have also been involved in the mobile phone market with two companies, one of which was one of the first companies to introduce mobile top-ups to the Irish market.

I hope to be able to draw on my experiences in both the private and voluntary sectors to explain Edmund Rice Mission to a wider audience and promote awareness amongst this audience of the great work that is taking place around the world in Blessed Edmund Rice’s name. I look forward to meeting as many people connected to the Edmund Rice Network as possible over the coming months.
