Nigel Dubben MSc BSc(Econ) MRICS
Position: Fellow of Kingston University
Nigel was, until 2011, Postgraduate Course Director in the School of Surveying and Planning. Nigel originally joined the University in 1984 after a career in project management and land development when he managed a £50m public sector project and numerous shopping centre developments. He was also development surveyor with Slough Estates (now SEGRO).
During his time at the University Nigel wrote and published "Property Portfolio Management - An Introduction" with Sarah Sayce as co-author and published by Routledge. Having left the University in 1988 Nigel rejoined the firm where he had worked as a project manager but this time as a partner. The firm acted on the Bentalls redevelopment and Nigel was involved in projects in Huddersfield and Teeside. He subsequently became a director of Grosvenor Waterside plc where he concentrated on waterside developments of redundant port land.
In the mid 1990s Nigel became a director of a firm of chartered surveyors that was taken over by a larger group. At that time Nigel returned to the University as a Senior Lecturer and progressed to Principal Lecturer and Postgraduate Course Director. Nigel worked closely with the Head of School to dramatically expand the School's Masters' provision, regularly spoke at conferences and acted as Chair of assessors for the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence. He was also external examiner at Dublin Institute, the University of the West of England and Ulster University. He wrote "Partnerships in Urban Property Development" with Brendan Williams in 2009 which was published by Wiley Blackwell.
Since 2011 Nigel has been involved with the School in an advisory capacity and in teaching. He is currently writing "Economics and Property", again with Brendan Williams, to be published by Wiley Blackwell in 2015.
