Paul Marshall Announced as the New Chief Executive of the Association of Business Schools
Professor Laing said:
“As the leading representative body for business schools in the UK, we are delighted to have been able to recruit a new chief executive of this calibre to replace Jonathan Slack. He will build on the foundations established by Jonathan, since the formation of the ABS in 1992.
Paul brings the set of skills, experiences and networks which will enable the ABS to deliver on its objectives of ensuring that the voice of the business school community is clearly heard within policy, business and university communities.
I look forward to working to working with Paul over the coming 12 months”.
Mr Marshall is delighted to be taking up the post and said:
'I am hugely honoured to have been appointed as the new Chief Executive of the Association of Business Schools. We stand of the cusp of a decade of unprecedented change and challenge for the Higher Education sector. I believe successful Business Schools play a fundamental part in the sectors current and future success.
Building on an excellent membership and organisational base, my challenge is to enhance member services and deliver a value proposition which supports Business Schools in these turbulent times. The Association must be a genuinely influential thought leader in the debate on university education. My aim is to ensure the business school voice is heard and understood within Universities, Whitehall, Business and the wider stakeholder community.
It will be tough act to follow, but I look forward to leading the ABS into the next phase of its development”.
