Christ’s College is delighted to welcome Alexandra Rowlands as Development Director. She will be made a Fellow of the College on 29 September.

Alexandra has over 15 years’ experience in fundraising, having worked for the Hallé, London Philharmonic Orchestra and most recently the Royal Opera House, where she held the role of Associate Head, Strategic Funding.

As Organ Scholar of the College from 2003-2006, she studied Music, followed by an MA in Cultural Policy and Arts Management at University College Dublin.

Simon, Lord McDonald of Salford, Master of Christ’s said:

“I am absolutely delighted that Alexandra is rejoining us - she is our first Development Director who was also an undergraduate at Christ’s. I am confident that knowledge will help her to hit the ground running!”

Alexandra said:

“I am delighted to be marking 20 years since my matriculation by returning to Christ’s as Development Director. As a fundraiser, it is a joy to be working in a place which means so much to me and has played such an important role in my life.

So much of what we do depends on the generosity and support of our alumni, and I look forward to welcoming members from all generations back to College in the coming months.”
