Sport governance is an highly researched area within sport business management. High profile cases of governance failure such as FIFA have drawn interest from a public that, traditionally, was not interested in governance. The growth of interest in governance has contributed to an increasing understanding of the many ways governance can influence an organisation and a sport.
My current PhD research quantitatively examines individual board members and their influence on the board’s fulfillment of strategic in conformance roles. Prior to this research, I qualitatively investigated how the board strategically manages a CEO succession. With my governance background and my diverse set of research skills, I have contributed to other research areas including marketing, talent identification and sport policy.
