Mark Nelson, Eleanora and George Landew Professor of Management and professor of accounting, was named the Johnson School's associate dean for Academic Affairs, a position previously held by Johnson School Dean Joe Thomas.

"Mark is an outstanding faculty member," said Thomas. "He has been a leader of the school, serving as chair of the Policy Committee as well as in many other areas. Mark also has an exceptional record of teaching and research – areas where he will continue to contribute."

"Nelson's primary responsibility as associate dean is to oversee the research mission of the school," noted Thomas. "I am confident that Mark will provide vision and leadership for furthering that mission."
