The American Marketing Association is pleased to announce the selection of Kelly Hewett as the next Editor in Chief of the Journal of International Marketing. Her four-year term formally begins on July 1, 2019. Most recently ranked 32/140 in business journals with a 2017 Impact Factor of 3.600, Journal of International Marketing is dedicated to advancing international marketing practice, research, and theory. Aimed at both international marketing/business scholars and practitioners at senior- and mid-level international marketing positions, the journal’s prime objective is to bridge the gap between theory and practice in international marketing.

Kelly Hewett is Associate Professor of Marketing at the University of Tennessee’s Haslam College of Business. Prior to joining UT, she worked for five years at Bank of America, where she was a senior vice president in the firm’s corporate marketing group. Previously, she had a ten-year academic career and also held prior positions in international marketing and marketing research.

Hewett’s research has been published in the Journal of Marketing, the Journal of International Business Studies, the Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, the Journal of International Marketing, and the Journal of Management Studies, among others. She has served as an Associate Editor for the Journal of International Marketing and serves on the Editorial Review Board for the Journal of Marketing, the Journal of International Business Studies, the Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, and the International Journal of Research in Marketing.

Hewett has received numerous awards and recognitions for her research, teaching, and service. She has served as a Corporate Trustee for the Marketing Science Institute and as a member of the boards for the Marketing Strategy and Global Marketing Special Interest Groups for the AMA. She currently leads several study-abroad experiences for both graduate and undergraduate students, teaches a Ph.D. seminar on marketing strategy, and teaches in the full-time, Executive, and Professional MBA programs.

“It is a great honor to have been selected as the incoming editor of Journal of International Marketing,” said Hewett. “I am thrilled to be able to leverage my broad-based experience in both marketing and international business, and as both an academic and a practitioner, in helping shape the future of the Journal. My goal is to build on JIM’s legacy in the discipline, and I am committed to publishing high-quality substantive research in international marketing that bridges the gap between theory and practice.”
Hewett takes the reins of the Journal of International Marketing from Constantine S. Katsikeas, who has served as Editor in Chief for nearly six years. The AMA Global Support Center is appreciative of Katsikeas’s incredible stewardship. Originally recruited to fill a three-year term, Katsikeas was asked to remain in the role for an additional three years. Katsikeas and Hewett will work closely to coordinate a smooth transition. Hewett will begin overseeing manuscript review for new submissions starting on April 1, 2019, and be responsible for all new submissions starting on July 1, 2019.

The selection committee consisted of David Griffith (Texas A&M University), Bryan Lukas (University of Manchester), Cheryl Nakata (University of North Carolina at Greensboro), Gaia Rubera (University of Bocconi), Goksel Yalcinkaya (University of New Hampshire), Matt Weingarden (American Marketing Association), and David Stewart (Chair in his role as Vice President of Publications for AMA and Loyola Marymount University).
