The L.A. Council is happy to announce that David Fields, a longtime Vincentian, has been named its new Deputy Executive Director.

These include: President of the St. Elizabeth Conference in Altadena, San Gabriel District President, Chairperson of the Conference Concerns Committee, and member of both the L.A. Council Board and Executive Committees.
David’s most recent professional position was as an Operations Manager with Bovis Lend Lease, a construction management company. Prior to working for Bovis Lend Lease, David worked at Xerox Corporation for 25 years. He held various management positions in Supply Chain Management, Distribution and Logistics.
