ACCC Commissioner, Stephen King, has been appointed as the new Dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics at Monash University. He will take up the post on the 19th January next year.
This is a terrific appointment (for Monash anyway). Of course, I would say that. Stephen is my former colleague here at the University of Melbourne and partner at CoRE Research. We have co-authored some 29 papers and several books together. These days it is rare to see Universities appoint accomplished international researchers, teachers and public intellectuals to leadership positions. Kudos to Monash for seeking out the real opportunities.
