Mark Edward "Ted" Workman is a former Canadian Football League executive.[1]

Workman purchased controlling interest in the Montreal Alouettes in 1954 with minority owner Léo Dandurand remaining as team president.[2] Workman replaced Dandurand as team president after the 1957 season and in 1965, he took on the addition responsibility of general manager. The Alouettes had a 50-71-5 record during Workman's tenure as team president and never finished above third place in the Interprovincial Rugby Football Union/Eastern Football Conference. He stepped down as team president in 1966, but remained the Alouettes principal owner until he was bought out by Joe Atwell in 1967.[3]

On February 23, 1967, Workman was named interim commissioner of the Canadian Football League. He was replaced by Allan McEachern before the end of the year.
