The Association for Information Systems (ASIS) gave its prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for 2012 to Bentley University Distinguished Professor Robert D. Galliers, FRSA.
The “ LEO” award, named for one of the world’s first commercial applications of computing (The Lyons Electronic Office), recognizes truly outstanding individuals in the field of Information Systems. Winners are academics or practitioners who have made exceptional contributions globally to the field of information systems. Furthermore, they are all involved on the local level of the field, and act as role models to colleagues and students.
Bob Galliers has contributed extensively to the field of Information Systems for over 30 years, in various leadership positions and on three continents. He has been a Fellow of the RSA for fifteen years and would enjoy meeting other Fellows in the Waltham, MA, area with a view to possible collaboration on an event. Bentley offers many opportunities for collaboration through the Valente Center for Arts and Sciences, the Center for Business Ethics; the Center for Women in Business; and the Service-learning Center, all part of the UN Global Compact Principles in Higher Education and the PRIME (Principals for Responsible Management Education) Initiative.
