I am the Head of Department for Marketing, Retail and Tourism at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. Previously, I was Associate Dean for Knowledge Exchange in the University’s Hollings Faculty, and the Principal Lecturer for Tourism Management.

Based in the University’s double-accredited (AACSB, AMBA) Business School, the Department is one of the largest providers of education in Marketing, Advertising and Brand Communications, Retail, Place and Tourism Management. Its courses are accredited by the Chartered Institute of Marketing, the Chartered Institute of Public Relations and the Institute of Place Management. Manchester Met is a long-time Premium Member of CHRIE and its Tourism provision is recognised as a Centre of Excellence by the Institute of Travel and Tourism.

I have been an active member of CHRIE since 2004, when I presented my first co-authored paper at the Philadelphia I-CHRIE conference. Since then, I have supported EuroCHRIE, I-CHRIE and APacCHRIE conferences as both contributor and reviewer of papers and posters.

I became involved in the management of EuroCHRIE in 2012 when I joined the Board of Directors as the Area Consultant for the United Kingdom. In 2015, I was Conference Chair for the 2015 EuroCHRIE annual conference at Manchester Metropolitan University. This conference brought together over 200 academics, PhD students and industry colleagues from across the three CHRIE federations to disseminate and celebrate research excellence, to share good pedagogic practice and to strengthen professional networks. In 2018, I joined the Executive of EuroCHRIE as interim Federation Secretary.
