About the Author:

Wendy L. Tate, Ph.D. (Arizona State University, 2006) is an Associate Professor of Supply Chain Management in the University of Tennessee Department of Marketing and Supply Chain Management. She joined the faculty in August of 2006. She teaches both undergraduate and MBA students strategic sourcing and manufacturing and service operations. She has an interest in the cost impacts of business decisions across the supply chain. She is active on the UT campus and serves on many committees. She served for five years as the faculty advisor of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), an active student-run professional organization for supply chain managers. She has published in both academic and practitioner top-rated journals in supply chain management. She enjoys research and takes a special interest in translating academic work into classroom learning activities.

Her research focuses on two primary business problems. The first is in the area of services purchasing, including outsourcing and offshoring. The second is on environmental business practices and trying to understand how these initiatives can be diffused across a supply chain and a supply network. She presents at many different venues including both academic- and practitioner-oriented conferences.

Wendy has two girls, Whitney and Tayler, who are both students at the University of Tennessee in the business college. Wendy enjoys the time she spends with them. She also enjoys gardening (she is currently working on a Landscaping Certification), traveling, hiking, and reading. She frequently attends cultural and sporting events. She also interacts with the literacy program in Knoxville and enjoys teaching students at all levels how to read and especially how to understand written problems so that they can potentially obtain college or technical degrees.
