The Financial Times described Feldman as "David Cameron's oldest political friend" since their days together at Brasenose College, Oxford.[2] Feldman was responsible for fundraising David Cameron's successful Tory leadership campaign in 2005.

He was created a life peer by David Cameron in 2010, and then Chairman of the Conservative Party, first as co-chairman alongside Sayeeda Warsi and then Grant Shapps between 2010 and 2015, then on his own as sole chairman from May 2015. His tenure ended after David Cameron's administration ended in July 2016.[3]
