Professor Andrew Pettigrew leaves the University today

Professor Andrew Pettigrew comes to the end of his five year tenure as Dean of the School of Management today but, far from retiring, he has put together a challenging portfolio of activities which will keep him busy for the foreseeable future.

The centrepiece of this is a Professorship in Strategy & Organisation at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.

He will continue as Member of Council for the ESRC and Vice-President of the largest management development organisation in the world, the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD).

He will also chair the academic sounding board of McKinsey’s worldwide organisation practice which currently accounts for 20 per cent of their business.

A final activity will be an involvement in the implementation of the Darzi report in the NHS. This report seeks to make radical changes in the quality of the patient experience and the quality of patient outcomes in the NHS.

Speaking today, Professor Pettigrew said: “I would like to thank everyone in the School and University who has supported the development of the School over the last five years.”

Professor Richard Elliot will take up the post of Acting Dean from 1 October.
