Middlesex University has appointed six new governors who bring a wealth of expertise from a range of sectors to its Board of Governors, a body which serves an important role in the strategic planning of the University’s future development.
Mark Jopling, John Athanasiou, Jacqueline Davies, Paul Pugh, Chris Fenton and Matt Lewis will join the Board of Governors. The initial appointment for Governors is one year but can be extended to three years by mutual consent. Governors may also be re-appointed for a second and third term.
Colin Hughes, the current Chair of the Board, will be replaced by Geraldine Proudler (pictured) who is currently Deputy Chair and Chair Designate.
Middlesex University Vice-Chancellor Tim Blackman is confident the new Governors will make an important contribution to the future of the University.
“It is great to welcome people with the calibre and commitment to Middlesex that Mark, John, Jacqueline, Paul, Chris and Matt bring to the University’s Board of Governors,” he says.
“Their tremendous breadth and depth of experience will be of huge benefit to the University at what is both a challenging and exciting time for Higher Education in this country.
“Colin Hughes has been an outstanding Chair of the Board. We will be saying goodbye in an appropriate manner in July, but meanwhile it is business as usual until we welcome Geraldine Proudler into this key position.”
