Boris Johnson's former chief of staff Dan Rosenfield has been awarded a peerage in the former Prime Minister's controversial resignation honours.
Mr Rosenfield, a former Treasury official who has also served as chair of World Jewish Relief, was one of five senior aides to resign over a 24-hour period last year over Johnson's handling of the Partygate scandal.
Born in Manchester, the son of a dentist, he attended Manchester Grammar School, before studying European studies at University College London. A longstanding member of Alyth Synagogue, he was raised in RSY and also spent a year on a kibbutz in Israel.
Before being head-hunted for Johnson’s team, Mr Rosenfield worked as a Treasury official for 10 years, during which he served under Labour prime minister Gordon Brown, Chancellor Alistair Darling, and Darling’s successor George Osborne.
After a decade at the Treasury, Mr Rosenfield went first to Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, and latterly to Hakluyt, a strategic advisory firm founded by former officials of MI6, the secret intelligence service.
As chair of WJR, Mr Rosenfield had a seat on the Jewish Leadership Council.
