Brash joins AUT

Brash joins AUT

Former Reserve Bank Governor Dr Don Brash has been appointed Adjunct Professor of Banking to the AUT Business School.

Dean of the AUT Business School Professor Des Graydon says the appointment recognises Dr Brash's outstanding wealth of knowledge in monetary policy and banking regulation.

"Dr Brash's understanding of the inner-workings of New Zealand's financial system is second to none," he says. "We are delighted to have him share his insight with staff and students."

Dr Brash gained his PhD in Economics from the Australian National University in 1965. He is most known for his 14-year tenure as Governor of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, where he gained a reputation for keeping tight control of inflation. In July 2002, Dr Brash became a Member of Parliament for the National Party, and became Leader of the National Party for three years from October 2003.

Today, Dr Brash is chair of Huljich Wealth Management and holds directorships with Ocean Partners and ANZ National Bank, where he is chair of the Risk Committee. In 2007, he was appointed Adjunct Professor at Melbourne's La Trobe University in the Faculty of Law and Management.

Dr Brash says he is delighted at the appointment.

"I am particularly pleased to have been made an Adjunct Professor at the AUT Business School," says Dr Brash. "Not least because I have been associated with the university since the days when it was still the Auckland Technical Institute. At that time, I was a founding member of the ATI Foundation."

An Adjunct Professor appointment recognises a person of international standing in the professions who can share expertise with the university in research or teaching.

Other appointments:
Also appointed to the position of Adjunct Professor are Professor of Accounting, Dr Lee Parker and Professor of Marketing, Dr Arch Woodside.

Professor Parker hails from the University of South Australia School of Commerce and is an Honorary Professor of Management & Accounting Control at Scotland's University of St Andrews School of Management.

Professor Woodside is from Boston College Carroll School of Management in the US and is editor-in-chief of four publications, Journal of Business Research, International Journal of Culture, Tourism, & Hospitality Research, Advances in Culture, Tourism, & Hospitality, Advances in Business Marketing and Purchasing.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
