STARKVILLE, Miss.--The head of Mississippi State's department of marketing, quantitative analysis and business law is the new president of the Society for Marketing Advances.

Associate professor Brian Engelland, a member of the university faculty since 1997, was installed as the 43rd president of the international society of marketing scholars during the organization's recent annual business meeting in San Antonio, Texas.

A department head since 2002, Engelland becomes the third MSU faculty member to lead the organization representing more than a 1,300 professionals. Others have included Henry Nash, now a professor emeritus, in 1976; and professor Ron Taylor, in 1987.

A member of the society for the past 14 years, Engelland earlier served the group as proceedings editor, secretary, membership vice president, and program chair. A doctoral graduate of Southern Illinois University, he has published widely in marketing strategy, measurement and education, and has more than 50 refereed journal and proceedings publications to his credit.

The international society is an influential contributor to substantive marketing thought through its scholarly conferences in North America and Europe, competitive research and teaching awards, research partnerships in China, and three academic journals that it sponsors. Its members include leading scholars in 18 countries.
