Bio

Ju-Yeon Lee is an Associate Professor of Marketing and John and Deborah Ganoe Faculty Fellow at Iowa State University. Her research focuses on customer centricity, business-to-government (B2G) and business-to-business (B2B) relationships, and digital/online channels. Specifically, she investigates how a firm’s realignment of organizational design elements (e.g., structure, leadership, culture, systems, metrics) toward customers can create value for both customers and the firm. Her research offers insights into how federal contractors or industrial buyers should manage their strategies to serve their customers. She also studies how sharing economy and online platform firms can deepen their understanding of customers.

Dr. Lee’s research has appeared in premier journals, including the Harvard Business Review, Marketing Science, Journal of Marketing, Journal of Marketing Research, Journal of International Business Studies, and Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science. Her research was recognized with the Financial Times (FT) Responsible Business Education Award, and the Davidson Award. Her work was selected as a finalist for the AMA/MSI/H. Paul Root Award and the AMA-Responsible Research in Business and Management (RRBM)-EBSCO Award. Grants from the Marketing Science Institute have supported her research. She serves as an area editor at the Journal of the Academy of Marketing Science, where she was also honored with the Best Reviewer Award. She currently serves on the Editorial Review Board of the Journal of Marketing, the Journal of International Business Studies, and the Journal of Public Policy & Marketing.
