Brendan Barnicle

VIII Oregon

Prior to my ordination, I spent over 20 years working in the investment world in a various capacities. For most of that time, I worked as a research analyst where I reviewed company performances and made investment recommendations to institutional investors. In addition, I served as a corporate finance lawyer and as the chief financial officer of an Internet start-up. So, I was blessed to view the investment work from a variety of angles. During my discernment, I questioned what God would do with my investment experience, and my priest mentor assured me that "God would use it all," and indeed, God has used it all. Since ordination, I have served in a variety of investment capacities. I serve on the Diocese of Oregon Board of Trustees and on the Diocesan Investment Council. I am currently serving as the Chair of the General Convention Task Force on New Funding for Clergy Formation. I am also the past Chair of the Trinity Cathedral Endowment and a past trustee at CDSP.
