April 14, 2014

Dr. Marko Bastl, assistant professor of supply chain management, has been named a finalist for the 2013 Harold E. Fearon Best Paper Award, which honors the top research article published in the Journal of Supply Chain Management, a premier journal that accepts only about 8 percent of submissions.

Bastl’s paper, “Who’s Seeking Whom? Coalition Behavior of a Weaker Player in Buyer-Supplier Relationships,” is one of three finalists for the award. As a finalist, he has been invited by the JSCM editorial board to deliver a talk for the Academy of Management conference in Philadelphia on August 2 at a workshop titled “Journal of Supply Chain Management Best Paper Session: Crafting a High Quality Research Paper.”

Bastl joined Marquette Business’ Department of Management in August 2013. Prior to that, he worked as a senior research fellow in the Supply Chain Research Centre at the Cranfield School of Management in the United Kingdom, where he also earned his Ph.D. Prior to academia, he was head of corporate financial and operational controlling for a paper manufacturing business. Bastl’s research and teaching interests include managing multi-tier inter-firm relationships, exiting buyer-supplier relationships and achieving supply chain transparency.
