Professor Andy Neely has been re-appointed as PVC Enterprise and Business.

Professor Andy Neely has been reappointed Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Enterprise and Business Relations for an additional year from 1 March 2023.

From 1 October 2022 he will have the additional title of Senior Pro-Vice-Chancellor, following the culmination of Professor Graham Virgo’s tenure. Andy is Professor of Manufacturing in the Engineering Department and a Fellow of Sidney Sussex College. He received an OBE for services to University/Industry Collaboration in 2020.

As Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Enterprise and Business, Andy leads University initiatives on innovation, commercialisation, startups, spinouts and links with business. He is also leading a number of change initiatives to help the University embrace new ways of working to better support our staff, students and academic mission. These initiatives include the University’s Recovery Programme as well as change programmes in professional services functions like HR, finance and research support. Andy is Chair of the new Change and Programme Management Board, a subcommittee of the General Board, which has been set up to help manage and coordinate University-wide change programmes.

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Stephen Toope, said: “Graham Virgo has been a superb Senior Pro-Vice-Chancellor, deeply committed and effective in his work. I am fully confident that Andy Neely will continue in that vein, bringing his great strategic and organizational skills to bear on the work of the University.” 

The other Pro-Vice-Chancellors are: Professor Anne Ferguson-Smith (Research and International Partnerships), Professor Kamal Munir (University Community and Engagement), Professor David Cardwell (Strategy and Planning), and Professor Graham Virgo (Education).
