Mark McGreevy OBE
As Depaul Group Chief Executive, Mark has oversight of the entire group of Depaul charities around the world. Mark splits his time between Depaul and two partner projects, the Famvin Homeless Alliance and the Institute of Global Homelessness.
Mark joined Depaul in February 1990 as one of the first employees of the charity. In 1992 he became CEO of Depaul UK, which expanded over the next 10 years from London into a national charity. Mark led Depaul’s international expansion into Ireland in 2002 and then into east Europe and the USA over the following decade. In 2014, Mark founded the Institute of Global Homelessness and in 2017 was asked by the Vincentian Family to coordinate the Famvin Homeless Alliance. Prior to joining Depaul, Mark was employed as a project worker at the Cardinal Hume Centre and the Passage Day Centre, both in London.
Mark trained for the priesthood in Durham between 1980–85 (not ordained), followed by a degree at Durham University, and then a post–graduate Certificate in Voluntary Sector Management at Hallam University. Until recently Mark was a trustee of CAFOD (10 years) and he is still on the board of Mary’s Meals. In 2015 Mark was awarded an OBE for his work with homeless people in the UK and abroad. He is an Honorary Fellow of Leeds Trinity University.
