GM SIG Significant Contributions to Global Marketing Award

The Global Marketing SIG is pleased to announce that Constantine S. Katsikeas, the Arnold Ziff Research Chair in Marketing and International Management, and the Founder and Director of the Global and Strategic Marketing Research Center at Leeds University Business School, is the recipient of the 2023 Significant Contributions to Global Marketing Award.

The Significant Contributions Award honors a scholar who has contributed significantly to the field of global marketing. A panel of past winners of the Significant Contributions award, current and past editors/co-editors of the Journal of International Marketing, and other distinguished academics appointed by the board of directors of the AMA Global Marketing SIG selected the winner. This year’s selection committee for the Award was comprised of Nicole Coviello (Wilfrid Laurier University and Committee Chair), Annie Cui (West Virginia University), and Stanford Westjohn (University of Alabama).

Professor Katsikeas is one of the most impactful scholars in international marketing. He has amassed an impressive record of publications in important journals (100+ articles–primarily in IM), accumulating over twenty thousand Google Scholar citations. His publications in international marketing are found in leading marketing outlets such as the Journal of Marketing, Journal of Marketing Research, and Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science (JAMS), in internationally focused journals, such Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS), Journal of International Marketing (JIM), Journal of World Business, International Business Review, and International Marketing Review, etc., and other academic outlets such as Journal of Consumer Psychology, Organization Science, Strategic Management Journal, and Decision Sciences.

Professor Katsikeas has served international marketing discipline via his editorship of JIM, his Area Editorship at JIBS, and his Associate Editor role for international marketing at JAMS. Furthermore, he has also significantly contributed to the AMA Global Marketing SIG. He has led the most successful conference events in our history – growing the discipline both in terms of the country diversity of international marketing scholars and the engagement of mainstream marketing scholars to our IM discipline.

The Global Marketing SIG thanks the selection committee for all their hard work in determining the winner and for everyone who nominated a very worthy slate of scholars for the award. The Significant Contributions Award will be presented at the 2023 AMA Global Marketing Conference in Santiago, Chile


Please join us in offering congratulations to

Constantine Katsikeas for his outstanding contribution to the global marketing field.
