Dr Justin Craig, Associate Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Business and Co-Director of the Australian Centre for Family Business (ACFB) has recently been appointed Associate Editor of Family Business Review (FBR), a top ranking international academic journal.
The appointment comes just weeks after Dr Craig received the 2009 Outstanding Reviewer Award for his contributions as a member of FBR’s editorial board, a position he has held at the A-ranked journal since 2006.
“I am looking forward to continuing my involvement in the family business sector, ensuring that this burgeoning field of research maintains strong levels of engagement with family business owners, advisers and academics alike,” Dr Craig said.
Dr Craig has had a long-standing involvement in the research and teaching of family business. His articles have been published in the Journal of Management and Organization, Journal of Business Venturing, Small Business Economics, Journal of Strategy and Management, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Journal of Small Business Management, Family Business Review and the Journal of Small Business and Enterprise Development.
He also holds editorial positions on the Journal of Small Business Management and Journal of Family Business Strategy boards, along with his appointment as Co-Guest Editor of the Journal of Management and Organization Family Business Special Issue, published in July.
In terms of pedagogy, Dr Craig has taught family business at the undergraduate and graduate level, and was heavily involved in the development and delivery of Australia’s first and only Executive MBA in Family Business. In addition, he heads up the broad-reaching Global Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Family Business Department within Bond University’s School of Business.
His contributions to academia extend beyond this, having presented at five conferences throughout 2009, including the Academy of Management (Chicago), International Family Enterprise Research Academy (Cyprus), HKUST Asian Family Business Roundtable (Hong Kong), Babson Kauffman Entrepreneurship Research Centre (Boston) and Babson STEP Global Summit (Boston).
