He was honoured as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of many years of voluntary service.
David Isaacs has been a trustee of the charity since 1999 and Chair since 2003. He said: “I’m so pleased that the work of Stonewall has been marked in this way. All the charity’s successes in recent years have resulted from the efforts of tens of thousands of supporters and volunteers as well as our staff. I’m honoured to have been able to play a part in that.”
He is also Chair of Modern Art Oxford and a trustee of the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fund.
Chief Executive of Stonewall Ben Summerskill said: “David has made a huge contribution to the direction of Stonewall and the LGB voluntary sector in recent years. He has helped transform our organisational and financial stability.
“This honour is a fitting tribute to someone who has done many years of voluntary work in a range of areas.”
David received the honour at Buckingham Palace alongside Kath Gillespie-sells who received an MBE for services to equality.
