The University of Edinburgh Business School has appointed a former Director-General of the National Pension Commission, Chinelo Anohu-Amazu, to its International Advisory Board.
Ms. Anohu-Amazu was confirmed as the PenCom DG in 2014 and removed in 2017.
According to the Edinburgh university website containing the information, the function of the International Advisory Board is to provide independent, external and commercially orientated advice to the University of Edinburgh Business School.
It adds, “Members of the Executive Team have a standing invitation to meetings of the Advisory Board, in order to ensure tight linkage between the School’s external members and the Team running the School on a daily basis.”
Chinelo Anohu-Amazu, a lawyer, is an external member of the Board, being one of the 15 individuals so appointed.
The institution states that it expects new ideas and developments from the Board members, who should “act as a sounding board and constructively challenging assumptions and the operating routines of the School where appropriate.”
The Board meets twice a year with individual members engaged in School activities between meetings.
“The Board’s composition aims to be diverse in terms of gender, geographic spread and industry sector/type representation to reflect the breadth of the Business School’s teaching and research themes,” the statement added.
