“ Ali was a unique leader for an academic setting; he had a knack for pulling independent people together around a vision. He was kind, empathic, humble, could be stubborn, always a sense of humour, a welcome excitement for ideas, understood the value of connecting a business school to the local business community. As a teacher he was a students' professor. We were changed by his friendship.
Ann, Niki and Kia our hearts go out to you, Robin & Marline ”
