Through this role Professor Hopgood, on behalf of Sheffield Business School, will work closely with the CMI to make management and leadership a priority for the UK industry.
To mark the occasion Professor Hopgood attended a companions networking event in London. Professor Hopgood said, ‘My invitation to become a companion of the CMI is testimony to the hard work of colleagues who have established Sheffield Business School as a CMI partner institution. I am delighted to accept this invitation, which will provide the school with valuable opportunities to engage further with the CMI.’
