Founding academic Professor Ken Moores AM to retire

After 25 years of service at Bond University, including six as Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Kenneth Moores AM has retired.

As a founding academic member of the University, Professor Moores came to Bond in 1988, initially undertaking the responsibilities of Professor of Accounting and Dean and Associate Dean of the School of Business, until he was appointed Vice-Chancellor and President in 1997.

During his six years at the helm Professor Moores was instrumental in securing ownership of the Bond campus in the name of the University and laid the foundations for much of the University’s on-going success. He then opted to return to an academic role by resuming his role as Founding Director of Bond’s Australian Centre for Family Business (which he established in 1994) and continuing his active research in the field as a Professor in the School of Business. 

A pioneer of family business research in Australia, Professor Moores has achieved national and international recognition for his work, being made a Member of the Order of Australia for his service to academia and the accounting profession in 2005 and receiving the award of Emeritus Professor from Bond University in 2012. In addition the University is establishing the Ken Moores Visiting Professorship in Family Business Studies to acknowledge his achievements in this field.

Bond University Vice-Chancellor Professor Tim Brailsford said, “Professor Ken Moores has made a remarkable and sustained contribution to Bond University and more broadly, to developing the field of family business research, in which he is internationally recognised as a thought-leader.

“His foresight in the early 1990s to pursue this emerging field of research is testament to the courage of his convictions – courage that he has passed on to his many PhD students who have had the privilege of researching with him.

“On behalf of Bond University, I would like to thank Professor Moores for his many years of service and wish him all the best as he embarks on the next chapter of his life,” said Professor Brailsford.
