Mr Hugh Edmiston appointed as Senior Vice-President at Singapore Management University

Mr Hugh Edmiston, current Vice-Principal Business Development and Director of Corporate Services, is to take up a new post at Singapore Management University (SMU).

Hugh has served the University for ten years driving many projects and initiatives and making major contributions, most recently playing a key role in the University’s involvement in the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Deal.

His move to Singapore will also mean the departure of his wife Paula who is the Financial Controller at the University’s Easterbush campus. 

Paula and I would like to thank colleagues for their patience, support and friendship over the years. We are lucky to have been part of something that makes it so difficult to leave the University and we wish everyone good health, happiness and success.”

Hugh’s service to the University long pre-dates my arrival but in my time here I have appreciated his hard work, energy and commitment as a member of my senior team.
