HEC Paris dean Peter Todd on his plans for the business school

Wed, 2016-05-18 12:23

When Peter Todd accepted the role of dean at HEC Paris, he was aware that he would have a difficult and unusual act to follow.

The 57-year-old Canadian, the first non-French head at HEC, took over in September last year from Bernard Ramanantsoa, who had ample time to shape a powerful legacy at the business school. Prof Ramanantsoa had been in the job for 20 years before retiring last summer, a lengthy tenure even for a business school dean.

Mark London grew up in the Elca London Gallery, of which he has been director for the past 25 years.

“The gallery and I were conceived at the same time,” says London, son of Jonas London, an office manager and McGill University commerce graduate, and Elca London, who held a master’s degree in psychology from McGill and worked at psychiatric hospitals.

Dean’s Q&A: Peter Todd, HEC Paris

Wed, 2016-05-18 11:45

When Peter Todd joined the administration of HEC Paris last July, he made history as the first non-French dean of the top-ranked school. This past January, he helped the business school make history again when, as a result of a new French law, it became the first school in France to take on the new status of a consular higher education institution (or EESC) in the country, giving the school its first true whiff of independence in its more than 130-year history.
