Associate Professor Danny Lanier received recognition for the paper, "Supply Chain Power and Real Earnings Management: Stock Market Perceptions, Financial Performance Effects, and Implications for Suppliers," which was published last year in the Journal of Supply Chain Management.
Danny Lanier, associate professor of accounting and chair of the Department of Accounting in the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business, received honorable mention in the Best Paper category during the 2020 Academy of Management Annual Meeting.
Lanier and co-authors Bill Wempe and Morgan Swink, both from Texas Christian University, were recognized for “Supply Chain Power and Real Earnings Management: Stock Market Perceptions, Financial Performance Effects, and Implications for Suppliers.” The paper, one of three finalists, examined the impact of major customers’ supply chain power on real earnings management (REM) for the purpose of meeting or beating earnings targets.
It was published in Volume 55, Issue 1 of the Journal of Supply Chain Management, which is ranked No. 1 across supply chain and operations management journals, based on its Thomson-Reuters ISI Impact Factor.
Founded in 1936, the Academy of Management is the preeminent professional association for management and organization scholars. Its annual meeting, held August 7-11 virtually, offered opportunities to expand knowledge and research while addressing the 21st century’s most pressing challenges, such as conflict, discrimination, corruption, well-being, economic opportunity and equality, and climate change.
Prior to joining Elon in 2013, Lanier was an assistant professor at Texas Christian University and a visiting professor at both Syracuse University and Wake Forest University. His research interests include the financial performance effects of significant seller-buyer relationships, earnings management, white-collar crime, and the effectiveness of anti-human trafficking regulations.
