NEW HEADS LINED UP FOR UNI BUSINESS FACULTY

 

The University of Lincolnshire & Humberside has appointed three Associate Deans to join its Faculty of Business & Management.

 

Denis Edgar-Nevill, currently head of the university’s Department of Management Systems, has been made Associate Dean with a responsibility for postgraduate activity.

 

In addition to developing the MBA programme at Lincoln, Mr Edgar-Nevill has been responsible for two recent successful European funding bids amounting to around £600,000. He will take up his post on 1st June 2000.

 

The other two positions have been filled externally. Dr Don White comes from Sheffield Hallam University to become Associate Dean for business development and off-campus programmes.

 

Dr White fulfils a similar but smaller role at Sheffield Hallam, where he manages clients such as Northern Foods. His subject specialism is Information Systems and he continues to supervise research degrees in this area. He will take up his post on 1st September 2000.

 

The faculty’s new Associate Dean for undergraduate programmes is Tom Jordan, currently Associate Dean in the Business School at Thames Valley University. Tom Jordan has substantial experience in HE at all levels and also has a background in management in the hospitality industry. He takes up his post on 23rd July 2000.

 

“These appointments will strengthen the faculty and will enable us to develop and deliver a consistent and coherent strategy across the three broad areas of the faculty’s work,” commented Prof Graham Hankinson, Dean of the Faculty of Business and Management.

 

“All three appointees have a strong track record of success and have the energy and vision to transform the faculty’s provision to meet the needs of the 21st century. I am greatly looking forward to working with them.”
