Former Boris aide Dan Rosenfield receives resignation peerage

The former chair of World Jewish Relief resigned from Downing Street last year


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.
