Glasgow Caledonion University appoints Leading Operational Risk Practitioner from Chase Cooper to Honorary Professorship

London-May, 2011 - Chase Cooper announced today that Glasgow Caledonian University has appointed Tony Blunden, Head of Consulting at Chase Cooper to an Honorary Professorship in the Department of Accounting, Finance and Risk in recognition of both his practical knowledge and application of risk management and his extensive academic work through many years of public speaking on risk management and the publishing of a considerable number of articles and books.

Dr Robert Webb, the Head of Department and Director of Caledonian Business School's postgraduate programmes, said 'Glasgow Caledonian University is delighted to welcome Tony Blunden to its department of Department of Accounting, Finance and Risk, a leader in risk management education in the UK. Tony's wealth of knowledge and experience of operational risk management will provide inspiration and insights that will greatly benefit our students and his appointment builds on the university's links with London, which have recently been further strengthened by the establishment of GCU London, our postgraduate university campus.'

John Kiddy, CEO of Chase Cooper, commented 'We are delighted to build further ties with academia. We strongly believe that a combination of academic work and practical knowledge is fundamental to the further development of operational risk management. Tony's thought leadership in pushing the boundaries of operational risk management through qualitative modelling has been exceptional. In addition, his book 'Mastering Operational Risk', co-authored with John Thirlwell and published by Financial Times Prentice Hall last year, has given the industry the first clear no-nonsense practical guide to operational risk management.'
