In his 30-year educational career he has supervised nearly 200 Doctoral and Masters dissertations, published 300 conference papers and contributed to dozens of other scholarly texts.

Stewart Germann, Chairman of the Board of Multi Serve Education Trust, said the new appointment was very timely for Multi Serve’s ongoing development. “John is an exceptional educator with a wealth of experience and we’re delighted to have him on the team,” he said.
