Ken Hall

Ken Hall’s (khall@bloomu.edu) interest in supply chain management stems from his experience as a practitioner in a B2B services environment (agricultural trade media). Not only did he develop an interest in the “field to fork” value chain as a subject, he gained extensive experience collaborating with other organizations to produce innovative communications products and services for advertiser clients and subscribers.

Hall became intensely interested in the processes supporting inter-firm collaboration, so much so that during his MBA studies, operations, managerial accounting, and product management courses were among his favorites, and he chose to study inter-firm collaboration in complex B2B markets for his doctoral dissertation. Ken, as an assistant professor of marketing, has interests and experience that contributed to the design of the Supply Chain Management program and makes him well-qualified to deliver related Marketing courses.
