Director Alumni Relations
Before moving into in Higher Education, Sue worked for the UK government for many years in the UK Border Force and as a diplomat with postings to Nigeria and Cyprus. From 2008, she held a variety of roles at the universities of Southampton and Reading, overseeing student recruitment, faculty management, business change, alumni relations and leading volunteering and fundraising campaigns. Sue believes in the virtuous circle of alumni engagement: students choose a particular institution because they are inspired by its graduates, and go on to become engaged and inspiring alumni themselves. In 2018, Sue joined RSM as Director of Corporate and Alumni Relations, taking on the additional role as Director of Alumni Relations for the whole of Erasmus University Rotterdam in 2020. Sue has three daughters, a fondness for classic rock music and once beat one of our vice deans in a (friendly) boxing match.
