Ron Mazier has been appointed director of the new Corporate Strategy & Accounts Department (CSA) at Wageningen University & Research (WUR), effective as of 1 January 2018. Ron will be joining us from the University of Twente, where he has been Strategy and Policy Director since 2009.
At Wageningen University & Research, Ron will head the CSA Department. CSA will handle all duties relating to the execution and support of strategy development, national and international account management and research support, which have all been condensed into a single department. The department was created to satisfy the need for a sharper focus on the strategic developments at both the university and WUR's research institutes. At the same time, Ron will give particular focus to the further professionalisation of national and international account management within WUR.
At the University of Twente, Ron was active in a wide variety of areas. He developed the Strategy and Policy Department into the high-quality service it is today, which focuses on providing the University of Twente with broad-ranging support in the formulation, design, monitoring, evaluation and adjustment of the institute strategy.
