We are delighted to welcome Professor Christos Tsinopoulos as he begins his role as the new Executive Dean of the School of Business and Management.
Replacing Professor Gloria Agyemang as she completes her six-year tenure (previously as Head of School), Professor Christos Tsinopoulos begins his role as the new Executive Dean of the School of Business and Management, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience in a range of areas, from engagement with external partners, businesses, and policy makers, to supporting interdisciplinary research and impact activities.
Joining the School from his previous role as Associate Dean for External Engagement and Professor of Operations and Project Management at Durham University Business School, Christos led the executive education unit and its impact activities, after previously holding the role of the Head of Department of Management and Marketing between 2019 and 2022, overseeing a significant period of change for the department.
A strong advocate of impactful research on a global scale, Christos has been a trustee of the Society for the Advancement of Management, a member of the executive committee of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers' Manufacturing Excellence awards, and a visiting professor in universities in Greece (Athens), USA (Fuqua) and China (Harbin and Hunan). His work has been published in the top journals in the field of operations and technology management and is frequently funded by industrial partners nationally and internationally, to inform policy. A collection of Christos' academic work can be found here.
Away from the world of Higher Education, Christos is a proud father to his two boys and is also a keen sailor in his spare time. All within the School wish Christos a very warm welcome to the Royal Holloway School of Business and Management community.
