Biography

I joined Norwich Business School (NBS) in September 2012 as Professor of Corporate Governance; I am also the Head of the Accounting, Finance and Governance (AFG) Group. Prior to joining NBS, I worked at Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham for 12 years where I was Professor of Corporate Governance & Finance, and the Director of the Centre for Corporate Governance Research. I began my academic career at the University of Nottingham in 1988 where I was also awarded my PhD in Finance. I subsequently lectured at Warwick Business School and in 1995 was appointed to my first Chair at Nottingham Trent University. I am a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).

I have undertaken a wide range of corporate governance research over the years and published widely in academic and professional journals. I have been invited to serve on several national and international committees on corporate governance (details in ‘External Activities’).

I was a Director (2000-2006), and Chair of the Audit and Risk Management Committee (2004-2006), of the Aston Reinvestment Trust (chaired by Sir Adrian Cadbury) which was launched in 1997 as a pioneer of social investment and has become the leading local community finance initiative in the UK.

From 2000-2007 I was the Editor of ‘Corporate Governance: An International Review' and remain on the Editorial Advisory Board. I am also a member of the Editorial Board of several other journals including the European Journal of Finance.

The fourth edition of my book ‘Corporate Governance' was published by Oxford University Press in 2013. I am also the Editor of several books published by Edward Elgar: ‘Handbook on International Corporate Governance'; ‘International Corporate Governance: A Case Study Approach'; and ‘Corporate Social Responsibility: A Case Study Approach'.
