The University of Chester has named Professor Chris Haslam as the new Provost of the university's Warrington Campus.

The appointment follows the retirement of Professor Annette McIntosh-Scott.

Professor Haslam also acts as the Senior Pro-Vice-Chancellor and has held a number of positions at the university since joining from the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.

Commenting on the appointment, he said: "I'm very much looking forward to working with both colleagues and students here at Warrington to deliver a high quality and enriching academic experience."

"I'm also very much looking forward to working with businesses, both large and small, in Warrington and its surrounding areas to explore how we can work more closely together - not only to help develop the strength and performance of individual businesses, but also the economic strength of Warrington and the region."

"I really welcome ideas and suggestions as to how the University might work more closely with businesses in the region and I'd be very happy indeed to meet with business colleagues to help develop a better understanding of their needs and how the University might help them."
