Michael Beverland

Professor of Brand Management, University of Sussex

Currently Head of Department and Professor of Brand Management at the University of Sussex Business School. I have previously worked in various business schools including the University of Bath, University of Melbourne, and Monash University. My research has focused on the market for authenticity, summarised in my book Building Brand Authenticity: 7 Habits of Iconic Brands. Currently I am interested in 'making', including in the interplay between production and brand value, the role of design in shaping markets and behaviour, and reinvigorating making sectors including research in creative clusters, manufacturing, and craft production.
