Business expert to speak at University

Anthony Glossop, Chairman of St Modwen Properties PLC, will visit the University’s Telford Campus on Wednesday 28 April, 2010.

The seminar, from 12.30pm to 1.30pm, will focus on the role of non-executive directors and corporate governance.

The free event in room SC028 has been organised by the Management Research Centre as part of a programme of external speakers.

Dr Silke Machold, Joint Head of the Management Research Centre, said: “"Corporate Governance, and especially the role of the non-executive director, has come into the limelight following a number of corporate failures and the financial crisis. We are delighted to welcome Anthony Glossop who, with his wealth of experience as both an executive and a non-executive director, is going to provide us with really interesting insights to the boardroom."

Anthony Glossop is a Cambridge law graduate and qualified as a solicitor in 1967 after a short spell in the Metropolitan Police.

He became Chief Executive of Redman Heenan International PLC, a capital goods engineering group, in 1982 in the depths of an engineering recession. He steered its transformation into a property group with its reverse takeover in 1986 of Clarke St. Modwen Properties Limited and change of name to St. Modwen Properties PLC.

In the following years, with Sir Stanley Clarke its Executive Chairman, he built St. Modwen to become the UK’s leading regeneration specialist. He became Chairman in 2004, a position he still holds although now in a non-executive capacity.

The event is free, but to book a place, please contact Stephen Greenfield at stephengreenfield@wlv.ac.uk or call 01902 32 1772.
