Case Western Reserve University President Barbara R. Snyder announced Wednesday that the Board of Trustees had approved the appointment of Manoj K. Malhotra, senior associate dean of graduate programs and former longtime chair of the department of Management Science at the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina, as the new dean of the Weatherhead School of Management starting Sept. 1, 2017.
“After an extensive national search, Professor Malhotra emerged as our top candidate,” President Snyder said. “His demonstrated success in research, administration, teaching and industry engagement give him the knowledge and experience necessary to lead Weatherhead at this time in its history.”
Malhotra will succeed Rob Widing, who led the school for five years after also serving as dean of Australia’s Macquarie Graduate School of Management for nearly three years. Widing, whose academic expertise is in marketing, will join the faculty full-time after a one-year sabbatical.
“I feel deeply honored to serve as the next dean of the Weatherhead School of Management, and am committed to enabling the success of the School’s faculty, staff and students,” Malhotra said. “I look forward to engaging and working with the internal and external stakeholders of the School to foster a sense of community and enhance its reputation locally, nationally and globally.”
