Matthew's at the helm as Cathedral appoints new chief operating officer

Rob George 13th Jul, 2022

THE DEAN and Chapter of Worcester Cathedral have revealed Matthew Hall as its new chief operating officer (COO).

He joins from the Diocese of Bristol, where he has worked for the past 14 years, most recently holding the position of deputy diocesan secretary (finance & operations).

Matthew will play a central role in delivering the Chapter’s strategy and plans, managing its day-to-day operations and nurturing its unique character and vision.

A chartered accountant by background, Matthew has previously worked at Bristol Cathedral and is also a trustee of a regional environmental charity.

“Worcester Cathedral is an outstanding centre of faith, heritage and community and I am very much looking forward to working with the Chapter and gifted colleagues to serve all those who connect with this unique place and its history and mission,” he said.

The Dean of Worcester, the Very Reverend Peter Atkinson, said: “Matthew has a wealth of knowledge and experience which make him highly qualified for the post of chief operating officer, and we are thrilled that he is joining the cathedral community.

“After several months without a COO in post, it will be very good to have him with us.”
