Mr Mark Blandford-Baker

College appointment: Emeritus Fellow


I was Home Bursar of Magdalen from 2001 to 2021; prior to that I worked in Cambridge, firstly in St. Catharine’s College and later in Jesus College.

In September 2021 I took up the post of Chief Executive of the Rothschild Foundation and subsequently returned to Oxford in a consulting and interim Bursaring capacity. I am now Domestic Bursar and a Fellow of St Edmund Hall.  I remain very active in the world of rowing, mainly in umpiring, regatta administration, and history.

In October 2022 I was sworn in as a member of the Court of the Company of Watermen and Lightermen of the River Thames.
