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.

From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
