Clare College Cambridge

Bill O'Hearn

Bill O’Hearn joined us in 2017 and leads Clare’s efforts to engage alumni and friends to maintain their connection with Clare and each other throughout their lives. Clare's Development Office is charged by the Master and the Fellowship to help ensure the College has the resources to meet its immediate and long-term needs. Over the next few years the focus is on the care and renewal of the fabric of the College, particularly Old Court. As always, Clare must also attract and devote resources to attracting outstanding staff, Fellows and students. Bill is grateful to all those who support the College and make the unique Clare experience accessible to today’s students.

Bill has successfully led campaigns here in England, the USA and Canada. Most notably he worked at Yale for six years and seven at Eton where he was instrumental in managing a £50 million campaign focused on bursaries and historic buildings.
