Kellogg Professor Named Guggenheim Fellow
IBM Professor of Regulation and Competitive Practice Daniel Diermeier, who is a reputation expert and long-time Kellogg School of Management professor, has been named a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow. He joins an esteemed list of scholars, academics, scientists, artists, poets, filmmakers and other global thought leaders honored by the yearly prize.
“Since 1925, the Guggenheim Foundation has always bet everything on the individual, and we’re thrilled to continue the tradition with this wonderfully talented and diverse group,” Foundation President Edward Hirsch said in a statement. “It’s an honor to be able to support these individuals to do the work they were meant to.”
The 178 Guggenheim fellows named this year came from a vast pool of almost 3000 aplicants, and came from 56 different disciplines. Those who were chosen got in based on “prior achievement and exceptional promise.”
“I am delighted and honored to join such a distinguished group of fellows,” Diermeier said.
Diermeier has taught at Kellogg since 1997. His research relates to reputation management, with his most recent book being titled “Reputation Rules: Strategies for Managing Your Company’s Most Valuable Asset.” He also works extensively in the public-private interface, studying how corporations and government interact. Diermeier is faculty director of the Kellogg Public-Private Initiative.
