Case Western Reserve University has appointed Mohan Reddy, who holds the Nancy and Joseph Keithley Technology Management professorship and is associate professor of marketing and policy studies, as interim dean of the Weatherhead School of Management.

Reddy's appointment comes with the strong support of Weatherhead's faculty.

"I am thrilled to take on the new role with a faculty and staff that has a long and cherished tradition of innovation," states Reddy.

Reddy succeeds Myron Roomkin, who was named dean and Albert J. Weatherhead, III Professor of Management at the Weatherhead School on November 1, 2004. Roomkin stepped down as dean August 1 to resume his faculty responsibilities in teaching and research in the department of management and policy studies at Weatherhead.

"We are excited that Professor Reddy has agreed to become interim dean at the Weatherhead School," said Gregory L. Eastwood, M.D. "His length of service at Case Western Reserve University and his experiences as a double alumnus will help provide continuity and steady leadership for the school."

Reddy joined Case in 1985. He received his Ph.D. and MBA degrees in 1985 and 1977 respectively from Case and his BSEE in 1975 from Mysore University.

Reddy has done research in the areas of industrial marketing and technology development and diffusion and has been the recipient of the teaching excellence award at Weatherhead five times (in 1985-'86, 1988-'89, 1995-'96, 1997-'98 and 2003-'04).

He also received the David Bowers' Alumni Service Award in 2001 and the Theodore M. Alfred Distinguished Service Award in 2003.

Reddy serves as a director of Brush Engineered Materials, Keithley Instruments, Smith Industries and Weatherhead Industries.
