Professor Sir Paul Curran, Vice-Chancellor of City University London, commented:
I wish to congratulate Stephen Avery on his appointment as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at Royal Holloway, University of London. It will be extremely sad to see Stephen leave after his great success at City. Stephen joined as interim CFO in July 2012 and was then appointed to the substantive role. Stephen has made an enormous contribution to the strategic direction of the University and notably led on the return of the University’s finances to a surplus position. We wish him well in his new role.
