“I'm surprised, thrilled, and humbled to receive this honor from the INFORMS Information Systems Society. This award represents the invaluable guidance and inspiration I owe to many, including my mentors, colleagues, Ph.D. students, guest speakers, friends, and family,” said Wu.
In Wu’s acceptance speech, he also recognized Mr. Ernest Scheller Jr., for whom his chair is named.
The INFORMS Information Systems Society President's Service Award recognizes IS academics who have demonstrated exceptional dedication to serving the IS community over time. Dr. Wu actively participated in various initiatives that contributed to the advancement of the IS field and the involvement of the professionals and academics in IS.
“It is particularly a testament to my brilliant colleagues at Georgia Tech and within the Information Technology Management group. This recognition also belongs to my co-authors and students who have consistently demonstrated creativity, resilience, and determination,” said Wu.
