Sir Bob Murray is Leeds Met's new Chancellor

Sir Bob Murray CBE has been installed as Leeds Metropolitan University’s new Chancellor today.

At a ceremony at the University’s Great Hall, the occasion began with 100 representatives from across the university leading a procession, followed by a showcase of student work, including music and dance performances.

“I am both astonished and thrilled to be here today. I feel very privileged to be invited to be Chancellor of this esteemed institution and I would like to thank the University for granting me this unique position.

This truly is a first class regional university with great vision, drive and values. Even in 2008 when I was awarded an Honorary Doctorate here I never dreamt of today. I hope my experience in business and lifelong focus on education will give me the necessary qualities to support the university."
