New leader to take over running of High Pay Centre while Deborah Hargreaves joins the board
The High Pay Centre has appointed Stefan Stern as its new director, succeeding Deborah Hargreaves who will stand down at the end of October.
Stefan is currently a writer on business, politics and management. He has been visiting professor of management practice at Cass Business School in London since 2010.
He spent four years as the Financial Times’ management columnist, stepping down in 2010 to become director of strategy at Edelman, the PR firm. He left Edelman in 2013 to return to full-time writing.
He writes for the FT, the International Business Times, the Guardian, and Management Today magazine. Stefan has previously worked with the High Pay Centre, contributing to its project on the power of business.
Stefan said: “I have long been an admirer of the High Pay Centre’s work, so it is great to be joining. The question of how senior people are rewarded, and what signal that sends to the rest of us, could hardly be more important. I hope the High Pay Centre will continue to make a vigorous and constructive contribution to the debate on pay.”
Deborah Hargreaves will join the board of the High Pay Centre and will continue to take a strong interest in its work. “I am confident that Stefan will take the High Pay Centre’s work to the next level and maintain its high profile in the fight against inequality,” she said.
