The newly established Donald L. Staheli Chair of International Management at Brigham Young University's Marriott School of Management has been awarded as a term chair to visiting faculty member Jeffrey H. Dyer.
Dyer comes to the Marriott School from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where he has been the Stanley Goldstein Term Assistant Professor of Management. He will join the department of organizational leadership and strategy in fall 1998.In announcing Dyer's appointment, K. Fred Skousen, dean of the Marriott School, remarked, "Dyer is one of the finest young faculty in strategic management in the country. He is an outstanding teacher and has had his research published in the best academic journals. We're delighted to have him as the first occupant of the Staheli Chair of International Management."
The Donald L. Staheli Chair is the result of a generous endowment from Donald L. Staheli, recently retired chairman and CEO of Continental Grain. Elder Staheli serves as a member of the LDS Church's Second Quorum of the Seventy. His gift of $1.5 million will be matched by up to $1 million from the Marriott School.
