The purpose of the Fellows of the Strategic Management Society is to recognize and honor members of the Strategic Management Society who have made significant contributions to the theory and practice of strategic management, as well as to provide opportunities for fellowship and a forum for discussion among persons so recognized and honored.
We at SMS are very sad to share with you that our colleague and friend Will Mitchell passed away unexpectedly on December 6, 2021. Will was a prominent leader and active advocate for the field of strategic management. He is survived by his partner Dilys Bowman and three grown children Mairi, Tamzin and Luc. At SMS, he served most recently as one of the SMS 41st Annual Conference Program Chairs, co-created the Strategy Imagination Forums, is an SMS Fellow, served on the Board of Directors from 2018-2020 and 2004-2008, has been a Co-Editor of the Strategic Management Journal and a Competitive Strategy Interest Group leader, and was a former Co-Editor within Media Innovations. The SMS Board of Directors, Office, and Community share our deepest condolences with Will’s family and friends. He will be sorely missed.
