Jorge Haddock, dean of the Robins School of Business at the University of Richmond, has been appointed dean of Mason’s School of Management, effective July 1.

Haddock will succeed current Dean Richard Klimoski.

“I am excited about the prospect of working with Dean Haddock and the experience and vigor he will bring to this position,” says Mason Provost Peter Stearns. “I think we are in for an exciting next phase in the School of Management.”

Haddock has served as dean of the Robins School since 2005. Before that, he was the associate dean and professor of management science and information technology in the Lally School of Management and Technology at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Haddock’s teaching interests include operations research, production planning and information technology courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. His primary research involves the design and implementation of effective information technology, production and service systems, as well as their effect on corporate culture. He has written and cowritten more than 70 publications.

“The School of Management at George Mason University has placed itself in an enviable position for further short- and long-term success. There are tangible opportunities for enhancing the quality of all programs, while capitalizing on growth and revenue endeavors,” says Haddock. “I am honored and thrilled to be the next dean of the school and thankful to all who have helped the school reach this level of accomplishment.”

Haddock earned a BS from the University of Puerto Rico, an MS from Rensselaer and a PhD from Purdue University.
