New president at IBE

August 2013

The Institute of Business Ethics (IBE) has appointed a new president. Tim Melville-Ross CBE, Chair of HEFCE, succeeds Sir Robert Worcester, founder of Ipsos-MORI, who has served as IBE President since 2001.

Chris Moorhouse, chairman of the IBE, welcomed the appointment: “Tim has given excellent support and encouragement to the Institute as a member of its Advisory Council. I am delighted that his advice will continue to be available to us in his new role.”

Tim Melville-Ross commented: “I have been involved with the IBE since 1994 and over the years, much has changed. A globalised economy, a diverse workforce, a public more alert to ethical issues has meant that businesses cannot be complacent when it comes to business ethics. Calls for greater trust in business miss the point – trust needs to be earned. A culture change is called for, to educate tomorrow’s workforce so that they consider the ethical dimensions of any business decision. I look forward to working with the IBE team in encouraging greater debate about how trust can be regained.”

Melville-Ross began his tenure as president at the beginning of July. Prior to joining HEFCE, Melville-Ross chaired the Council of the University of Essex and chairs Royal London Insurance and the Homerton University Hospital NHS Trust. He has been a member of the IBE’s advisory council since 1994.
