About Professor Richard Lynch

Richard studied at UMIST, Leeds University and the London Business School. He then spent over 20 years in business with well-known companies such as J Walter Thompson, General Foods (now part of Kraft) and Dalgety Spillers (now part- owned by Nestle) in positions on marketing and strategic management. During the 1980s, he was a director of two public companies before setting up his own consultancy company specialising in European and international strategy. In the 1990s, he became increasingly involved in higher education, eventually taking a full-time professorship in 1998. He retired from his full-time post in December 2004 but remains active in research, writing, speaking and consulting. He has written five books on international marketing and strategy and has published in research journals. His current research interests focus on global strategy, particularly with regard to developing countries.
