William Liew will join UWE Bristol as Director of Finance on 12 November. He is currently Deputy Director of Finance at the University of Bristol. He will lead a strong team in Finance and will be joining the Vice-Chancellor's Executive.

William brings a wealth of experience – he has worked for KPMG in London and Bristol before moving to the University of Bristol in 1992. During his time at the University of Bristol he has worked in a number of finance positions and he was promoted to Deputy Director in 2005.

William Liew comments, “This appointment is a fantastic new challenge for me. I relish the opportunity to join UWE Bristol and I'm looking forward to playing a key part in its future.”
