He has much to contribute to the School of Government and will make an excellent leader,” says Professor Buckle.

He has published seven books on management and leadership, and is co-editor of the journal Leadership. He is Vice-Chair of the International Leadership Association, as well as a Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management and The Leadership Trust.

Professor Jackson says he is looking forward to taking up his new role.

“The School of Government is unique amongst New Zealand universities in its mission to serve the public interest through the combined efforts of its pioneering research, its impactful teaching and its role in bringing together leaders from across the sectors who are intent on improving the well-being of all New Zealanders.”

Professor Jackson will take up the position on 1 February 2014.
