College of Business Administration Announces Changes

The University of Tennessee College of Business Administration has undergone several administrative changes that went into effect August 1.

Ted Stank, Dove Professor of Logistics and Transportation and head of the Department of Marketing and Logistics, became interim associate dean for academic programs, replacing Sarah Gardial who became UT's vice provost for faculty affairs.

Replacing Stank and becoming interim department head of the Department of Marketing and Logistics is Matt Myers, Nestle USA Professor of Marketing and director of the college's Global Business Institute.

Donde Plowman, Faskerud Professor of Strategic Management, became the interim head of the Department of Management.
Amy Cathey, former director of the Executive MBA program, became director of the college's full-time MBA program.

Replacing Cathey as head of the Executive MBA program is Kate Atchley, director of the college's leadership development program and faculty member in the college’s executive MBA programs.

"While there is always a sense of loss when good people leave positions that they have served so well, it is exciting to have new people in positions that they formerly have not held and to be the beneficiary of the energy that they bring," said Jan Williams, dean of the College of Business Administration. "I am pleased -- and excited -- with the new leadership group that will be working on behalf of the college this coming year."
