A former BP executive is to become the new Bishop of Birmingham, Downing Street has announced.
Bishop David said he was pleased to return to the West Midlands
The Rt Rev David Urquhart, 54, who is currently Bishop of Birkenhead in the Diocese of Chester, will take up his post later in the year.
Bishop David, who was vicar at Holy Trinity in Coventry for eight years, said he was delighted to be returning to the West Midlands.
He succeeds the Most Revd Dr John Sentamu, who is now Archbishop of York.
Bishop David was ordained after 10 years working in commercial management with BP.
He then served in two inner-city parishes in Hull before moving to Coventry in 1992.
"It is a great honour to have been chosen to serve as Bishop of Birmingham.
"There are exciting challenges ahead in church growth and community regeneration. I am delighted to be returning to the West Midlands and to become part of a vibrant, forward-looking, international city," he said.
Archbishop Sentamu said: "I am delighted Bishop David is to be the next Bishop of Birmingham and feel confident he will lead the diocese with wisdom and generosity."
