Professor Emeritus Gary Powell will be recognized by the Family Firm Institute as the recipient of a 2018 Academic and Family Business Review Award at a global conference in London in October.
Powell will be honored for his research titled, “Kinship and Sex in Family Firms: Who Reciprocates the CEO’s Altruistic Behavior?” Powell’s experience spans 41 years in the management department at the School of Business. He is an expert on gender differences in the workplace and is widely regarded as a pioneer in the field. Powell announced his retirement as a full-time faculty member in the spring, but will still teach occasionally.
The Family Firm Institute strives to be the most influential global network of thought-leaders in the field of family enterprise. Powell will be honored alongside scholars from Belgium, France, Italy, Singapore and other United States universities.
