David Anderson was born in Margaretville, N.Y., in 1943 and grew up in Binghamton, N.Y. He graduated from Northwood School in Lake Placid, N.Y., and from Colgate University in 1966 with a B.A. in economics. He graduated from New York University Graduate School of Business Administration (now Stern School) in 1972 with an M.B.A. degree in international finance and banking. While at Colgate, he was head of the school’s radio station. He started work in 1967 with Manufacturers Hanover Trust in the international division and, in 1973, moved to Bangkok to run the representative office. In 1976, he relocated to Singapore and, then in 1979, to London to work in the London branch as corporate lender. He relocated back to New York in 1980 to manage a group focusing on large corporations and utilities. During all the mergers – first with Chemical Bank and then Chase – from 1991 to 1996, he managed a portfolio of utility clients in the eastern United States and, from 1996 to 2002, focused on the corporate trust business in Asia. From 2002 to 2006, he was representative director of J.P. Morgan Trust Bank in Tokyo. In 2002, he returned to New York and eventually retired after a 40-year career in banking. David and his wife Margaret live in New Canaan and have three children and three grandchildren residing in New York City, New Haven and Yarmouth, Maine. He belongs to the Tokeneke Club and Old Asia Hands (a group of bankers who worked in the Asia Pacific region) and is advisor to a major Japanese bank. He enjoys visits to the YMCA (mainly for swimming) and has completed two sprint triathlons with no plans for more. He spends the majority of his time on a farm he owns in West Chesterfield, N.H.
