Dr. McGill became an academic after many years as a practicing manager in high technology industries (most recently Alcatel-Lucent and Avaya). Companies and organizations are fascinating subjects in that they survive or fail based on the decisions they make, and each of us is affected as a consequence – as employees, customers, suppliers, shareowners, etc. In addition to teaching at Kean McGill has spent time on research in China and, more recently, as a Fulbright Scholar in Greece where he researched alliances in the short sea shipping industry.
