I am an Emeritus Professor in the Department for Finance, Accounting and Business Systems (FABS) at Sheffield Business School, Sheffield Hallam University.

Before becoming an academic, I had more than 30 years of international business experience, mainly based in Europe, with half of that as a Managing Director or Chief Executive Officer in food or fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) firms.  I am a citizen of both Australia and the UK and have been an Executive in Residence at Sheffield Hallam University, and a member of a committee supporting a significant research program at the university focussed on cultural diversity.

I entered academia in 2007 at Macquarie Graduate School of Management (MGSM) in Sydney, Australia.  I studied for, and was awarded, an MBA and then a PhD.  I was appointed Director of Academic Programs in 2011.  In 2013, I was appointed Professor and Dean at Flinders University Business School, Adelaide, South Australia.

My research interests are in mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, forensic accounting matters and change management.  I am keen to seek more engagement between business practice, education, and management research (domestically and internationally), and develop frameworks to support career development.
