Beth Dodd

The University has appointed Beth Dodd as our new Director, Transformation Programme, to lead our Programme Management Office and have a key role in the implementation of our new Strategic Plan.

Beth will join us from the University of Leeds where she is currently Head of Business Change.

Previous to this Beth held a similar position in Yorkshire Water, and is also chair of the Continuous Improvement Exchange Forum (a public sector community group consisting of around 20 different public sector bodies in the North of England, sharing good practice in change management), and so will bring a rich variety of HE, public and private sector perspectives to the role.  

Beth said: “I feel honoured to be taking on the role of Director, Transformation Programme and can’t wait to start working to support the delivery of our University’s Strategic Plan.”

Beth will report to Matt Atkin, Director of Planning. He said: “I’m delighted that Beth is joining us. She is widely recognised as a driving force behind how the University of Leeds has transformed its approach to change management and it is fantastic to be able to attract someone of Beth’s calibre to the role.

“She is joining Manchester at an exciting time as we develop our new Vision and Strategic Plan and consider our priority activities for the next five years.”

Beth will take up her new role on 1 August.
