Professor with Distinguished Career Appointed at Weatherhead
Dr. Jagdip Singh named H. Clark Ford Professor of Marketing
CLEVELAND – The Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University is proud to announce the appointment of marketing professor, Dr. Jagdip Singh as the H. Clark Ford Professor of Marketing. This prestigious Chair is named in honor of Cleveland real estate and banking pioneer, H. Clark Ford (1853-1915).
Throughout his career, Singh has developed a long-standing and compelling relationship with the Weatherhead School of Management as well as the University as a whole. In 1992, he received Case Western Reserve University’s John S. Diekhoff award for excellence in graduate teaching, and in 1997 was presented with Weatherhead’s Research Recognition Award for outstanding contributions to research. Most recently—in 2007—Singh was honored with the Excellence in Doctoral Teaching and Mentoring award.
Singh teaches graduate courses in Marketing Research, Quantitative Inquiry, Research Methodology and Measurement for MBA and doctoral students. His research focuses on issues of effective interfaces between organizations and consumers including managing frontline boundaries, the dynamics of building consumer trust, and bottom up learning to leverage customer relationships.
Singh has published more than 50 major research articles in journals including the Journal of Marketing, Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Marketing Research, Management Science, Journal of the American Medical Association, and the Journal of International Business Studies. He has also received “Excellence in Reviewing” awards from the Journal of Marketing, Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, Journal of Retailing, and the Journal of Personal Selling and Sales Management.
“Jagdip has compiled a distinguished record of scholarship and is counted among the very best scholars in the field of Marketing,” said Weatherhead School of Management Dean Mohan Reddy. “In addition to celebrating his Chairing, we are grateful to the Ford family for their on-going interest and investment in Case Western Reserve University and the Weatherhead School.”
H. Clark Ford’s family has had a long association with Case Western Reserve University. In addition to the Weatherhead Chair, Flora Stone Mather College and the School of Applied Social Sciences started at the former Ford home, while Allen Ford—the grandson of H. Clark Ford—served as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the University from 1987 to 1992.
