Dr Clive Morton

Dr Clive Morton, an independent adviser and coach on World Class Strategy and Board Development, leads The Morton Partnership, which specialises in organisational transformation, consulting to boards in Private, Public and not for profit sectors. He is a civil engineering graduate from Leeds University and spent the early part of his career in the British construction industry, working in both engineering and industrial relations. He also has a PhD in Industrial Relations from the London School of Economics.

In the early 1980s Dr Morton served as Director of Resources and Administration at Wimpey Offshore and Wimpey Engineering, before joining Komatsu (Japan's largest integrated maker of construction machinery) as Director of Personnel and Administration, at the outset of the company's UK manufacturing operations in Birtley, Co Durham in 1986. During this period he established the Northern Pinetree Trust, a charity for those with disabilities. In July 1992 Dr Morton was appointed Director of Personnel at Northern Electric and was awarded the OBE in the same year for services to manufacturing and the community. He became Personnel Director of Rolls-Royce Industrial Power Group in April 1994 and then worked with Anglian Water from March 1996 until March 2000, first as Human Resources Director and latterly as Director of Business Development.
