To: All pastors and secretariat members
From: Most Reverend Gregory John Hartmayer, OFM, Conv., Archbishop of Atlanta
I am pleased to announce that I have selected John Berry as the Chair-elect of the Finance Council. John will assume the role in December when the term of our current Chair, Kieran Quinn, ends. To ensure the smoothest of transitions, Kieran will remain on the Finance Council through the end of 2021.
By training, John is a nuclear engineer and worked for government and business entities for 25 years. In 2006, he joined the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Georgia as CEO. Many of you know him from that role. Upon completing the $6.5 million capital campaign, John retired, but I have recalled him to active duty.
The Finance Council is a critical consultative body upon which I rely for advice and counsel. John’s experience as a Vincentian along with his business acumen make him uniquely qualified to lead this body. I look forward to his tenure.
I have asked John to acquaint himself with working of the Archdiocese so please be open to discussions with him.
Please join me in congratulating John as the Chair-Elect of the Finance Council.
