Gary Cundill



I am engaged in part-time doctoral studies, and am currently researching the question as to how best may shareholders influence executives with respect to a firm's environmental and social impacts.

I work for a South African-based Group of chemical and explosives manufacturing companies.  My role includes corporate responsibility for environmental, health and safety issues.  I serve on the Group's Social and Ethics Committee, and chair the Responsible Care Standing Committee for the South African Chemical and Allied Industries Association.  I am currently engaged in pursuing an International Executive Doctorate through Cranfield University's School of Management.
