Dr Hugh Pattinson
Over the last fifteen years the Australian & New Zealand Academy (ANZMAC) developed as the preeminent regional organisation for developing, supporting and recognising marketing theory and research. Nevertheless, external pressures such as tightening research budgets, consolidation/rationalisation of business faculties/schools, and of ‘marketing’ curriculum will impact ANZMAC’s future development. I have worked closely with several ANZMAC executives in recent years gaining understanding of these key challenges. I bring to the executive committee over 18 years of academic research, curriculum and management experience to help shape an effective, adaptive and sustainable future for ANZMAC.
