Andrew Disbury

I am Andrew Disbury and my 30-year career covers four British universities and the British Council. As Vice-President at MSM, I offer universities offshore solutions to recruit international students. I have spoken regularly at conferences and am now Chair of the EAIE’s Awards and Talent Committee. I was a co-founder of the Rainbow Task Force and served on the Marketing and Recruitment Steering group. In 2020 I will be an academy and workshop trainer. My experience includes oversight of institutional strategy; managing finances, human resources and operations to corporate compliance; developing happy, productive teams; and leading diversity in staff and services. I believe this wide range serves the General Council’s role of oversight of the Board’s executive work. I have held similar oversight roles as primary school Governor and on national and commercial advisory boards. You can trust me to act as General Council member to the best of my ability. I am fundamentally international: I studied six languages; I have a 40-year link with China, and I have a bicultural family. I am very fortunate to have my candidature supported by past President Markus Laitinen and Rainbow Task Force Chair Beer Schröder. I hope to gain your support too.
