Dr. Abbie Griffin, the Royal L. Garff Presidential Chair in Marketing at the David Eccles School of Business, will be honored this spring as one of the top 45 ranking researchers in the technology innovation management field. The award comes on behalf of the International Association for Management of Technology, and will be presented at a May ceremony in Washington, D.C.

“It is gratifying to have the national spotlight shine so prominently on one of our most outstanding faculty members,” wrote University of Utah President David W. Pershing in a letter to Griffin penned after he heard the news from the assocation. “Please know how much your University values your contributions as a teacher and researcher. We are fortunate, indeed, to have you on our campus.”
