Chad Autry now leads the Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management at the Haslam College of Business. His role as department head is effective on Feb. 1.
Autry, the William J. Taylor Professor of Supply Chain Management, sees continued growth for the department and rising prominence within its fields of expertise. “The faculty of both of our programs, as well as our staff, are as good as you will find anywhere,” Autry said. “It’s not a surprise that the students we turn out are helping us rise to the top of company and media lists. Stay tuned — this department is poised to do many more great things.”
Autry succeeds Mark Moon, who served in the position for five years. Moon will return to his role as the Flaskerud Faculty Fellow.
“The department is doing so well on so many fronts thanks to Mark’s passion and vision,” said Autry. “He’s recruited amazing people and has our international recognition on a massive upswing. I’m excited about our strengths and the strategies he has put in place have us ready to act in many unique ways that benefit the world by tying together our marketing and supply chain perspectives.”
Autry joined Haslam in 2010 after teaching at Oklahoma City University, Texas Christian University and Bradley University in Peoria, Ill. He has been published extensively in premier academic and national journals for his research on socially responsible interfirm and interfunctional relationships. He is the outgoing Editor in Chief of the Journal of Supply Chain Management, serves on several editorial boards within the field and has worked with professional, civic and governmental organizations on supply chain improvement.
