  • Business Administration


  • Branding, Brand management


My main research area concerns strategic brand management, which theoretically is positioned in the intersection of marketing, strategy and organization.  Using both qualitative and quantitative methods I an especially interested in studying brand orientation, a min-set where the brand is perceived as the hub of the organization.  Currently I am primarily focusing on analyzing the key drivers of brand orientation, on understanding the specific challenges of adopting a brand oriented min-set and on investigating the relationship between brand orientation and organizational performance in the private, public and non-profit sector.
