Biography

George graduated from the Technological Educational Institution of Piraeus in Athens with a B.Sc. in Business Administration. He was employed in the Accounting Department of Greenpeace Greece for two years (1994-1996) as Chief Accountant. During the period from 1996 to 2002 he attended and successfully completed postgraduate studies at the University of Glasgow (MAcc, Ph.D.) that resulted in his appointment as Lecturer in 2002.

George undertakes research in the area of management control.  His main interests include the impact of management control systems on human behaviour in contemporary organisations, the design of incentive schemes and reward packages for middle managers, and the determinants of dysfunctional behaviour in the managerial setting.  In the last four years, and partly with the financial support of the CIMA Research Foundation, his research programme has mainly concentrated on systems of performance measurement, evaluation and reward, and the way these influence the process of motivation at the middle management level.

George is a member of the editorial board of Scientific Touristic Journal, and he frequently reviews papers for a number of leading international accounting journals, including Management Accounting Research, Accounting and Business Research, and the British Accounting Review.

An empirical investigation of the expectancy-valence theory of motivation in the managerial setting.
