Fisher’s longstanding and ongoing commitment to supply chain education, research and excellence was highlighted at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals’ (CSCMP) 2023 annual Academic Research Symposium.

The organization unveiled its inaugural class of Distinguished Fellows, a group of supply chain professionals recognized for their “significant contributions to the science and practice of supply chain management.” Of the 20 individuals selected to the 2023 class, five have connections to Fisher and Ohio State:

  • Bernard J. LaLonde, Professor Emeritus of Marketing and Logistics (In Memoriam)
  • Douglas M. Lambert (PhD ’75), Raymond E. Mason Chaired Professor Emeritus, Academy Professor
  • Martha Cooper (PhD ’82), Professor Emeritus
  • Lisa Ellram (MA ’89, PhD ’90), University Distinguished & James Evans Rees Distinguished Professor of Supply Chain Management, Miami University
  • James R. Stock (PhD ’75), Frank Harvey Endowed Professor of Marketing, University of South Florida

Mikaella Polyviou (MBLE ’08, PhD ’16), an assistant professor of supply chain at Arizona State, led the CSCMP’s academic conference.

During the CSCMP Global Conference for all members (academic and practitioners), Terry Esper was inaugurated as the organization’s board chair. Esper, co-director of the new online Master of Supply Chain Management at Fisher, has served as a member of the college’s Department of Marketing and Logistics since 2017 and was recently named a professor of logistics.

Esper’s appointment represents one of two Fisher faculty members in leadership positions at the CSCMP. Mike Knemeyer, professor of logistics, serves as the organization’s co-chair of academic membership.

The CSCMP has been a global leader in education, research and the advancement of the supply chain management profession since 1963. The organization has more than 8,500 members across 65 countries representing business, government and academia.
