4/10/2014 - IBM Professor of Regulation and Competitive Practice Daniel Diermeier can add another honor to his impressive résumé.

The long-time Kellogg professor has been named a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow, joining scholars, academics, scientists, artists, poets, filmmakers and other global thought leaders honored by the yearly prize.

"A renowned scholar and reputation management expert, as well as an outstanding teacher, Daniel exemplifies the best of Kellogg," said Kellogg Dean Sally Blount '92. "On behalf of the entire Kellogg community, I congratulate him on this great honor."

Selected from a group of almost 3,000 applicants, this year's 178 honorees came from 56 different disciplines and were chosen based on “prior achievement and exceptional promise.”

"I am delighted and honored to join such a distinguished group of fellows," Diermeier said.

Leader in his fields

Diermeier has taught at Kellogg since 1997. In addition, he holds faculty appointments at Northwestern’s Political Science, Linguistics and Economics departments, as well as Northwestern Law.

His research relates to reputation management. His most recent book on the subject is "Reputation Rules: Strategies for Managing Your Company's Most Valuable Asset." He also works extensively in the public-private interface, studying how corporations and government interact. He is faculty director of the Kellogg Public-Private Initiative.

In addition to Diermeier, Northwestern’s Associate Professor Jiaxing Huang of the McCormick School of Engineering was also named a Guggenheim Fellow.

“Since 1925, the Guggenheim Foundation has always bet everything on the individual, and we’re thrilled to continue the tradition with this wonderfully talented and diverse group,” Foundation President Edward Hirsch said in a statement. “It’s an honor to be able to support these individuals to do the work they were meant to.”
