Canadian Catholic as Governor of the Bank of England

Posted 1/7/13
Mark Carney, the Canadian Central banker, appointed by George Osborne, to be Governor of the Bank of England, comes from a Catholic family in Alberta, where he was educated before going on to Harvard and Oxford. He began his career at Goldman Sachs, before taking positions in the Canadian Department of Finance and then serving as both deputy Governor and Governor of the Bank of Canada.
This is the first time someone from outside the United Kingdom has been appointed to this post and Mr Carney is also the first Catholic Governor. The Catholic Union wishes him every success in his new and important role both for this country and the wider global economy
