Professor Steve Wood appointed Research Director of Surrey Business School

We are delighted to announce Professor Steve Wood has been appointed as Research Director of the Surrey Business School.

Professor Steve Wood has assumed the role of Research Director. A social scientist by background, Steve’s own field of research is retail management, including the geography of retail, retail pricing, and the internationalisation of retail, and he has published widely in this area. Steve has been in leadership roles in the School for many years now, in particular in his function as Head of the Department of Marketing and Retail Management, a role from which he is now stepping down. In his new capacity as Research Director, he will form and lead a Research Committee from across Departments / Research Centres, which will help us to take research at the School – in all its dimensions and facets – to the next level.
