MEET DR DANIEL FRIMPONG
Article by Chris Keane There were congratulations all round when Dr Daniel Frimpong, a member of CPA Australia and the Institute of Chartered Accountants, was recently promoted to become a senior lecturer at CQUniversity Sydney. Like other academics who teach in the accounting and marketing streams, Daniel brought with him a store of industry knowledge and experience when he began lecturing in 1998. He accumulated his breadth of industry knowledge by pursuing a successful management career in the banking, telecommunications and information technology sectors. In the 1990s, Daniel rubbed shoulders with the big business league. He worked for several major corporations including Westpac, Nortel and Fujitsu, in both Australia and Japan. His former banking role saw him employed as Manager of Management Reporting in Westpac's head office in Martin Place, Sydney. He was responsible for planning, analysis and reporting on a $10 billion asset portfolio held by Westpac's Asset Management Group. more... http://uninews.cqu.edu.au/UniNews/viewStory.do?story=7047
