Tuck Strategy Professor Wins Distinguished Scholar Award

Andrew King was honored for contributions to the field of environmental management/sustainable business.

The Academy of Management’s (AOM) Organizations and the Natural Environment (ONE) honored Tuck professor Andrew King with its 2015 Distinguished Scholar Award. The second winner in the award’s history, King will receive a commemorative plaque, recognition at the annual ONE Business Meeting at the Academy of Management Conference, and a cash prize.

“The distinguished scholar is someone who has started conversations, built up or extended the ONE community, contributed new ideas and scholarship to the field, and has spanned disciplinary boundaries,” says the University of Michigan’s Andy Hoffman, head of AOM’s ONE division. “Professor King’s contributions have been central to the development of the field of environmental management/sustainable business.”

According to King, an expert in environmental performance and strategy, his biggest impact came from mentoring students and scholars, many of whom have gone on to distinguished careers.

“Winning this award is an honor but also humbling,” says King, who dedicates it to his mentees, past, present, and future. “ONE helped me throughout my career. I hope I can pass on the same aid to a new generation of scholars.”
