Recent Western Cape Business News

The University of Stellenbosch's Business School's new director, John Powell, has taken office as head of the business school.

Powell, who hails from Wales, took office as director of the USB last week. He is the former head of Marketing and Strategy at Cardiff University Business School (CARBS) in Wales. At CARBS he was responsible for the teaching and research delivery of a team of 30 academics, including six full professors.

He takes over from Prof Eon Smit, who has held the directorship since 1996.

Powell obtained an MA in Engineering at Cambridge University, and later a PhD in Strategy at Cranfield University. Prior to his appointment at CARBS, he held a variety of academic positions in the UK, including professor of Strategy at Southampton University and professor of Strategic Analysis at Bath University. His research interests are in the application of mathematical and systems methods to strategic issues.

After an early naval career, Powell spent 16 years working at British Aerospace plc (now BAE Systems) holding appointments as director of Submarines, as general manager of a prime contracting division and as head of the large NATO/EU market for command and control systems.
