Over the last 11 years Edward led Cubane’s efforts to build the UniForum service offering that has now provided insights to over 50 universities globally on ways to transform the efficiency and effectiveness of their administration and support service operations.
Before founding Cubane, Edward consulted independently to the insurance sector. He was also an Associate to Principal and Principal at Booze Allen Hamilton; working across logistics, energy and chemicals and leading the insurance consulting practice respectively. Prior, he was a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in chemical engineering and industrial chemistry at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), publishing over 40 papers in international journals; and a Science Research Scientist in the Institute of Industrial Chemistry (Technishe Chemie), ETH Zürich, Switzerland.
Edward holds a Master of Business Administration from INSEAD, a PhD in Industrial Chemistry from UNSW and a Bachelor of Engineering (chemical) from the University of KwaZulu-Natal.
Edward enjoys cycling, sailing, trekking mountains and the occasional fly-fishing trip and hopes one day to again play the clarinet with his family chamber music group.
