Rodney to chair Glasgow School of Art board
The Glasgow School of Art has appointed solicitor Philip Rodney as the new chairman of its board of governors.
Mr Rodney, partner and chairman of Burness Solicitors, specialises in media and entertainment law, product liability and dispute resolution. He succeeds international businessman Professor Nick Kuenssberg OBE, who stands down as chairman in June 2010 after nine years.
As chairman of the GSA Board, he will lead a diverse team of governors who are responsible for setting the strategic direction of the School and overseeing the director and her senior team as they deliver the School’s strategic objectives.
These include the redevelopment of the School’s estate, the development of international partnerships and ongoing excellence in learning, teaching and research.
