He first served under Prince and Grand Master Andrew Bertie and, since 2008, under Prince and Grand Master Matthew Festing at the Palazzo Malta in Rome. In recognition of his high office in the Order, he was promoted Bailiff Grand Cross of Honour and Devotion in Obedience. 0n 30 May 2014 Mazery has not been re-elected as Grand Chancellor; in his place was elected Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager, while in place of the Grand Commander d'Ippolito was elected Fra' Ludwig Hoffmann von Rumerstein, thus reconfirming the traditional attribution of these positions to members of the nobility, the custom is not always respected.
