The University of Pittsburgh’s winners of the 2022 Chancellor’s Distinguished Research Awards include J. Jeffrey Inman, Associate Dean for Research and Faculty and Albert Wesley Frey Chair in Marketing for the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business.

Inman was honored for an outstanding record of research and academic activity and for his role in “the creation of a field of marketing research that explores the way that the consumer in-store experience shapes decision-making.”

He and the 14 other recipients received a letter from Chancellor Gallagher along with a $2,000 cash prize and a $3,000 grant to support their work. Awardees will be recognized at the Faculty Honors Convocation on April 1 in Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall.

Inman’s academic area focuses on consumer response to marketing actions, particularly in a retailing context. In 2021, he received the American Marketing Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for the Retail and Pricing Special Interest Group. In 2020, he was named a Fellow of the Society for Consumer Psychology. He has published more than 50 articles and has more than 14,000 Google scholar citations.

“Jeff Inman continues to push the boundaries of research and innovation in business,” says Arjang A. Assad, Henry E. Haller Jr. Dean. “We are continually impressed by his contributions to the field and grateful for all he has done here at Pitt Business.”
