Anderson Schools Outstanding Faculty Member Named

March 17, 2004

The Robert O. Anderson Schools of Management Foundation Board has selected this year’s honoree for the Community Leadership Award. Richard A. Reid, a professor in the Department of Marketing, Information Systems, and Decision Sciences at The Anderson Schools at The University of New Mexico, was named this year’s outstanding faculty member based on his service to the community, as well as teaching and research excellence. “The Foundation Board is always pleased to honor faculty members who bring their expertise back into the community,” said John Brown, Chair of the ASM Foundation Board’s Community Relations Committee. “While academic honors often focus exclusively on published articles, we like to recognize those people who make a point of enriching the community, both on a local level and a larger professional level. Dr. Reid demonstrates all the qualities that we look for in a faculty leader.” He will be recognized alongside three outstanding Anderson Schools’ alumni being inducted into the Hall of Fame – Michael J. Glennon, President of Albuquerque TVI; Eric M. Pillmore, Senior Vice President - Corporate Governance, Tyco International; and Michael A. Romero, President, Terradigm, Inc.

Reid joined the faculty at The Anderson Schools in 1969 and received his Ph.D. from Ohio State University in 1970. He teaches classes on service operations management, production and inventory management, management of science, business statistics and management of quality. Dr. Reid has been extensively published in a variety of peer-reviewed journals, most recently partnering with Anderson Schools adjunct faculty member Jim Cormier to write “Applying the TOC Thinking Process: A Case Study in the Service Sector” which was published in the September/October 2003 issue of Managing Service Quality. Reid is a member of the Decisions Sciences Institute and the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences and has been a consultant for Los Alamos National Laboratory, AlliedSignal Aerospace, and Sandia National Laboratories. He serves on the Board of Directors for the Albuquerque Chapter of the Educational Society for Resource Management (APICS) and was the guest speaker at the Chapter’s January 2004 meeting.

Reid will be recognized at The Anderson Schools of Management’s 15th Annual Hall of Fame dinner, to be held on May 6 at Sheraton Old Town, Albuquerque, with no-host cocktails at 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m. The major sponsors for this year’s event to-date are Wells Fargo Bank, Bank of the West, Grant Thornton, Jaynes Corporation, KPMG LLP, and PNM.
