Corpus Christi welcomes new Bursar
Corpus Christi welcomes Mr John Harrison as Bursar.
Commenting on his appointment John said, "I am delighted and honoured to be here as Bursar and to be trusted with the task of stewarding the College's resources. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to arrive at a time of immense challenge and opportunity. The economic climate makes the task difficult, though within the obvious challenges there are immense opportunities for individuals and for Corpus Christi as we ride through the storm and prepare for the future. The President and Fellows have given me clear strategic goals; an early imperative is the funding and execution of building work as well as events that will serve as an enduring celebration of the quincentenary in 2017.
Since arriving on the 3rd January, I have been immensely impressed by the skill, motivation, loyalty, kindness and dedication of everyone I have met within College. As I now seek to attain these admirable standards I look forward to getting to know each and every member of College. My role is to support, enable and serve those fortunate enough to be a part of Corpus Christi. Members past, present and future are assured of my dedication and delight in undertaking this exciting task."
