I am delighted to be joining the Council of Trustees for the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies. I am looking forward to working with my fellow trustees from other institutions to help shape the future direction of the management studies discipline. Like so many of my colleagues I want to ensure that the field of management studies supports the work of talented scholars from all backgrounds and fosters research that will have a positive impact on the world around us.Professor Stephen Bach, Executive Dean, King’s Business School
