Imperial College Business School has reappointed Francisco Veloso as dean for a second term.
He first took up the role in 2017, when he joined Imperial from the Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics in Portugal (LSBE), where he was dean. At LSBE he also held the NOS chair in innovation and entrepreneurship.
Veloso is an adjunct professor at Carnegie Mellon university, where he previously held a full professorship.
His research focuses on high tech innovation and entrepreneurship, and he holds regular appointments including as a board member and adviser to companies and governments.
Commenting on the reappointment, Veloso said: “I am delighted with the re-appointment decision and would like to thank everyone in the business school and across the Imperial community for all we have accomplished together and the tremendous support that I have felt over the past five years.”
He added “I am very excited by the momentum and great initiatives of the school and look forward to continue working alongside wonderful colleagues to establish an even greater business school.”
