Professor Howard Thomas Elected as Vice Dean of the BAM Fellows College

6th December 2017

BAM is pleased to announce that Professor Howard Thomas (Singapore Management University) has been elected to serve as Vice Dean on the Dean's Group of the BAM Fellows' College from January 2018

On being informed of his newly elected position, Howard said:

"As a founder member of BAM and a BAM fellow, I am deeply honoured to have been nominated or the position of Vice Dean (Elect) of the College of Fellows of BAM.

My career background spans both acknowledged scholarship in strategic management and serial deanships of business schools on these continents. This experience has provided me with a deep understanding of management education, and even more importantly, the value of management research in the business and management school environment.

I believe the BAM fellows group has a strong role to play. Indeed, I share the vision, and perspective, of the current deans group that the BAM fellows must link more strongly with the BAM membership and more importantly, provide innovative leadership to reassert the strength of British management education and research globally"

The Vice Dean joins the Dean’s Group (Past Dean, Dean, Deputy Dean) and will progress annually to become Deputy Dean, Dean and then Past Dean. Thus, the term of office is four years in order to provide continuity. These officers preside over the College's academic, strategic and electoral affairs.

From 1st January 2018, the officers of the Dean’s Group will comprise:

Dean - Professor Gerard Hodgkinson (University of Manchester)
Deputy Dean - Professor Peter McKiernan (University of Strathclyde)
Vice Dean - Professor Howard Thomas, (Singapore Management University)
Past Dean – Professor Ken Starkey (University of Nottingham)
BAM President – Professor Sir Cary Cooper, (University of Manchester)

The role of the Dean’s Group is to:

  • Promote a dynamic Fellowship agenda;
  • Facilitate dialogue in areas of key interest to the profession;
  • Arrange social and intellectual gatherings of the Fellows;
  • Nominate BAM members for external awards and honours; and
  • Recommend appointments of new Fellows to the College.
