New Business appointments at UniSA
Business at the University of South Australia has seen three new
senior staff members appointed recently.
A new Chair of Property position was created late last year and has been filled by David Parker. Joining Dr Parker soon will be Professor Mark Goh in the School Management and Professor Charles Rickett in the School of Law.
Dr Parker is a specialist in Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and property valuation theory and practice, who is widely published in academic and industry journals, and is a regular presenter at property conferences in Australia and overseas.
He has had extensive experience in the private sector, including roles as Senior Investment Manager, Property, for ANZ Funds Management; Director, Property Solutions Group, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young; and General Manager of the Australian Valuation Office in Canberra. Before joining UniSA he was an Adjunct Professor of Property at both the University of Queensland and the University of Technology Sydney, as well as a Visiting Fellow at the University of Ulster.
Prof Mark Goh takes up the position of Professor in the School Management next month (March). He is currently Associate Professor at the National University of Singapore, and over the past 15 years he has focused his work on logistics and supply chain management.
Prof Goh is also currently the Director of Industry Research within The Logistics Institute – Asia Pacific, a collaboration between the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) which offers research and education programs in global logistics. In addition, he is Research Track Leader at the Centre for Maritime Studies which is a NUS research centre specialising in maritime affairs, responding to the need to pool resources together to embark on forward-looking research, capitalising on global trade trends in Singapore and the world.
The third appointee, Prof Charles Rickett, will join the UniSA School of Law in April after finishing up as the Sir Gerard Brennan Professor of Law at the University of Queensland where, among other things, he was the Dean of Law for five years. He is a graduate of Oxford and Cambridge Law Schools, and has held teaching appointments at the University of Cambridge (Emmanuel College), University College London, Victoria University of Wellington, Massey University and the University of Auckland.
Prof Rickett’s teaching and research interests include equity, banking law, restitution, theories of obligations, and legal ethics, and he has published widely in those areas with several books to his name. He has also published in journals such as the Cambridge Law Journal, Modern Law Review and Sydney Law Review.
