Curtin Business School has appointed KPMG partner and well-known media commentator, Bernard Salt, as an adjunct professor.
The established international trend forecaster and advisor for business and government affairs joined KPMG, a leading provider of business and tax services, in 1998.
Mr Salt said he plans to share his knowledge and experience of Australia’s business industry with WA and Curtin.
“I think some of the biggest issues facing the nation today emanate from WA, so I was very pleased to have an alignment with Curtin,” Mr Salt said.
“I hope to inspire students, act as an ambassador for Curtin University and to promote its interests wherever I can throughout Australia.”
CBS Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Duncan Bentley said Mr Salt would be an impressive contributor to the School’s economics and finance program.
“Mr Salt’s experience as one of Australia’s leading trend forecasters and extensive knowledge of business and government affairs, spans well over two decades,” Professor Bentley said.
“I look forward to Mr Salt’s contributions and welcome him to Curtin Business School.”
Mr Salt is a regular media commentator through his twice weekly column in The Australian, and appearances on 7:30 Report, 60 Minutes, A Current Affair and Today Tonight.
