David A. Griffith Reappointed as Journal of International Marketing Editor

In conjunction with the American Marketing Association, the editor selection committee comprised of Richard J. Lutz (chair), Bart A. Weitz, Kathleen Seiders, Daniel Bello, Michael Houston, Frank Franzak, and Francesca Cooley is pleased to announce the reselection of David A. Griffith as editor of Journal of International Marketing. Griffith will serve a second threeyear term, starting July 1, 2010.

AMA Vice President of Publications Richard Lutz commented on Griffith’s reappointment, “The committee was extremely enthusiastic about the job David has done in his first two years at the helm of JIM. We canvassed both authors and review board members and found uniformly high regard for the direction that JIM has been taking and the progress that has been made. Maintaining JIM’s strong momentum under David’s energetic leadership was our chief criterion.”

David A. Griffith is the John William Byington Endowed Chair in Global Marketing and Associate Professor of Marketing at Michigan State University. His current research projects include, but are not limited to, effective global marketing strategy development, understanding the role of culture in interorganizational relationships, and understanding the skills necessary for successfully operating in the global economy.

“I am deeply honored to be appointed for a second term as editor of Journal of International Marketing,” Griffith said on news of his reappointment. “I undertook the editorship with the desire to serve the international marketing community of scholars and practitioners. I am fortunate to have been able to work with an outstanding editorial review board and a wonderful community of marketing and international marketing scholars to advance the journal over the past two years in relation to four areas: (1) expanding the base of contributing scholars in the JIM community, (2) increasing the quality of manuscripts published in JIM, (3) increasing the visibility of JIM, and (4) increasing the value delivered to international marketing practitioners. We have made great progress. I very much look forward to working closely with the editorial review board and those scholars working to advance the field of international marketing so as to build on the journal’s current momentum and further enhance the stature of Journal of International Marketing.
