Member Spotlight: Alan Meyer

“I’m tremendously gratified to receive this award for service, because AOM has delivered tremendously great services to me over the last 44 years. It’s the scaffold I’ve used to build my identity and career as a researcher, scholar, teacher, and editor. AOM is where I learned to present papers, teach classes, and review manuscripts.”

Alan Meyer is the 2022 recipient of the Academy of Management’s Distinguished Service Award for his impassioned volunteerism over the past 44 years. Meyer has been an impactful member of the AOM community--fueling various academic initiatives, volunteering within Division and Interest groups, and working to ensure research remains credible, relevant, and beneficial within society.


Meyer first joined AOM as an Academic member while receiving his PhD at the University of California, Berkeley. Born in California and raised in Seattle, Meyer currently lives in Eugene, Oregon, where he’s Professor Emeritus of Management at the Lundquist College of Business, University of Oregon.
