Congratulations to O&M friend Joe Mahoney for winning the Irwin Outstanding Educator Award for 2011. The Irwin Award is issued each year by the Business Policy and Strategy Division of the Academy of Management to someone who “(1) has demonstrated outstanding teaching capabilities in business strategy over an extended period of time and the ability to enable future strategy scholars to contribute original research as well as teaching effectively; (2) has had an important impact on strategy pedagogy through demonstrated expertise; and (3) cares deeply about the subject of Strategic Management and the development of his or her students.”

Joe has been my friend and colleague for several years and it’s great to see him join such luminaries as Michael Porter, Mike Hitt, Don Hambrick, Jay Barney, Kathy Eisenhardt, Pankaj Ghemawat, Will Mitchell, and Anita McGahan on the list of Irwin winners.

    Heartfelt congratulations, Joe! Now there is a reason to go to San Antonio in the dead of Texas summer – to raise a series of toasts in your honor! Margaritas?

    Let me add my congratulations and heartfelt thanks to you, Joe. You are a model for what scholarship, teaching, and service to a profession should be. Dorothy and I count ourselves fortunate that we know you and that we have you and your lovely bride, Jeanne, as our friends. This award is richly deserved, and I’m just proud to know you and to be mentored by you. Bravo, Joe Mahoney, the greatest and grandest of colleagues.

    Whoo-hoo! Joe, huge congratulations. You are a model educator, scholar and friend. We’re all so lucky to have you in our lives and in the profession. Can’t wait for the invariably hilarious speech you no doubt will give in San Antonio.

    @Michael: Two of them are dead and the third is retired. Quiet company for Joe.
