Professor Stephen J. Perkins spent the first part of his career in industry, notably as a member of the privatisation team in electricity generation, going on to work in an executive role in National Power, a FTSE top 30 business – one of the plc’s created during the electricity supply industry deregulatory process. In that capacity he worked to support business development through acquisition and greenfield investment across southern Europe, the USA and Asia. He spent a period as a management consultant, leading a successful start-up business, the Strategic Remuneration Research Centre, working with colleagues at City University, London. Following doctoral research at Oxford University he transitioned into a full-time academic role, teaching at that ancient institution as well as modern universities offering business management education in the UK and Germany.
In keeping with his professorial chair, in the years 2011-14 he chaired the Corporate Governance SIG of the British Academy of Management and until its disbanding in 2015 was a member of the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Academic Advisory Council.
Professor Perkins served a four-year term as Dean of the Faculty of Business and Law, London Metropolitan University, stepping down from that role in spring 2016. He continues to pursue his interest in corporate governance both through research and practically as a non-executive director. His activities also have extended in pursuit of an interest in the application of AI and social robotics potential.
