Matthew Waller, dean of the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas, will receive the 2020 Distinguished Service Award from the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals. Waller will receive the award during the group’s national conference. The virtual event is Sept. 20-23.

CSCMP’s Distinguished Service Award is the industry’s most prestigious honor, bestowed upon an individual for significant achievements in the logistics and supply chain management industry. Presented annually, the award was instituted in 1965 as a tribute to logistics pioneer John Drury Sheahan.

Waller has been a full professor at the UA since 2007 and dean of the Walton College since May 2016. In private business, he co-founded Bentonville Associates Ventures in 1996 and was chief strategy officer and co-founder of Mecari Technologies from 1998-2002. He has been involved in many consulting engagements with consumer goods companies and high tech growth companies.
