Professor Chris Mullard (LLD)
Chris Mullard was born in Hampshire in 1946. His career to date has produced considerable experience at a high level of management, organisation and the development, modernisation and multiculturalisation of national and international agencies.
His academic career (principally in the political sociology of race relations, education and development) reached its peak in the late eighties/early nineties when he held the Royal Chair in Ethnic Studies and Education at the University of Amsterdam. Since the publication of ‘Black Britain’ (Allen & U 1973) and ‘Race, Power and Resistance’ (Routledge 1985) he has been published extensively and provided keynote speeches at national and international gatherings.
But perhaps the ultimate manifestation of Chris’s passion, drive and ability can be found within Focus Consultancy, which he co-founded in 1986 as a multiracial agency, specialising in the provision of research, development, social marketing and other key consultancy services in the field of the social management of change within global and multicultural contexts.
Chris received his CBE in 2004 for services to race relations from the 1960s when he was Secretary of CARD (the Campaign Against Racial Discrimination). He recently resigned as Chair of London Notting Hill Carnival after a tenure of six years and he is currently Honorary Consul for South Africa for the South West of England, Governor of the Royal Agricultural College (Cirencester) and Deputy Lieutenant for the County of Wiltshire.
He is a keen golfer and his other hobbies include gardening, travel and theatre.
