P. Ronald Harrington

VIII Los Angeles

A lifelong Episcopalian, I have been involved in financial management throughout my career. When practicing as a CPA, I was designated as a national expert in financial instruments, investment companies, and security broker-dealers. I was a security principal and licensed investment advisor at two investment advisory firms responsible for several billion dollars of assets under management. This work was focused on institutional investors, including the endowments and pension funds of universities, public sector organizations and non-profit foundations. My experience with clergy and others has impressed me with the significance that the design and the security of the Church pension arrangements have on their lives. I have a particular interest in ensuring that the provisions of our benefit arrangements are responsive to the needs of nontraditional families; also, that the programs be adapted as possible to support the future diversity and changing demographics of Episcopal clergy.
