Paul Moxey


Paul Moxey is Visiting Professor in Corporate Governance at London South Bank University. He focuses on the overlap between culture, governance, business ethics and uncertainty and how all these affect performance. He is developing training and executive development material for seminars, workshops and e-learning. Good theory needs be applied in practice and he looks forward to working with people who want to improve their culture, governance and risk management to make their organisations more successful. This should generate sustainable gains in output, innovation, staff motivation, customer satisfaction and the bottom line.

He was responsible for ACCA’s policies on corporate governance and risk management, was a leading contributor to its responses to global developments in this area and participates in committees and projects on corporate governance and risk around the world.

A qualified accountant and MBA, Paul held senior positions in industry including spending several years as company secretary and as group financial controller of a UK public company. Before joining ACCA, he was a consultant specialising in corporate governance in the UK National Health Service. The Department of Health commissioned him to write much of its corporate governance guidance to health authorities, NHS trusts and primary care trusts. He has also worked directly with a number of these organisations, helping them introduce effective governance and risk management.
