“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.
