Lincoln University’s Vice-Chancellor, Dr Andrew West, today announced his new senior management team.

“In selecting this team I chose to emphasise academic quality, scholarship, a positive experience for our students, the vibrancy of research, our relationships with the many communities in which we work, commercial business development and enabling corporate services, along with appointing a balance of individual personalities.

“Correspondingly, I am pleased to announce five dynamic and professional senior managers with complementary skills and experience. Working as a tight knit team along with all the staff, students and alumni of Lincoln University, as well as with our clients, this team will enhance the reputation of New Zealand’s specialist, land-based university such that it is increasingly respected across the world as an exceptional place to share, discover and learn” said Dr West.

Assistant Vice-Chancellor Scholarship and Research - Dr Stefanie Rixecker
Assistant Vice-Chancellor Communities - Professor Hirini Matunga
Assistant Vice-Chancellor Business Development - Mr Jeremy Baker
Group Manager Corporate Services - Mr Murray Dickson

Professor Matear, Professor Matunga, and Dr Rixecker have previously held positions at Lincoln University.

His other roles have included: Executive Director of the NZ Industry Training Federation; Manager of Employment and Skills Policy in the Department of Labour; the adviser on Education and Training at BusinessNZ; and a senior adviser to the Tertiary Education Advisory Commission.
