About the Author:

As a team, Christopher Lovelock and Jochen Wirtz provide a blend of skills and experience that’s ideally suited to writing an authoritative and engaging services marketing text.  This book marks their second collaboration on an edition of Services Marketing. Since first meeting in 1992, they’ve worked together on a variety of projects, including cases, articles, conference papers, two Asian adaptations of earlier editions of Services Marketing, andServices Marketing in Asia: A Case Book. In 2005, both were actively involved in planning the American Marketing Association’s biennial Service Research Conference, hosted that year by the National University of Singapore and attended by participants from 22 countries on five continents.

 

 

Christopher Lovelock is one of the pioneers of services marketing. Based in Massachusetts, he consults and gives seminars and workshops for managers around the world, with a particular focus on strategic planning in services and managing the customer experience. Since 2001, he has been an adjunct professor at the Yale School of Management, where he teaches an MBA services marketing course.

            After obtaining a BCom and an MA in economics from the University of Edinburgh, he worked in advertising with the London office of J. Walter Thompson Co. and then in corporate planning with Canadian Industries Ltd. in Montreal.  Later, he obtained an MBA from Harvard and a PhD from Stanford, where he was also a postdoctoral fellow.

            Professor Lovelock’s distinguished academic career has included 11 years on the faculty of the Harvard Business School and two years as a visiting professor at IMD in Switzerland.  He has also held faculty appointments at Berkeley, Stanford, and the Sloan School at MIT, as well as visiting professorships at INSEAD in France and The University of Queensland in Australia.

            Author or co-author of over 60 articles, more than 100 teaching cases, and 26 books, Dr Lovelock has seen his work translated into ten languages. He serves on the editorial review boards of the International Journal of Service Industry Management, Journal of Service Research, Service Industries Journal, Cornell Hotel and Restaurant Administration Quarterly, andMarketing Management, and is also an ad hoc reviewer for theJournal of Marketing.  

            Widely acknowledged as a thought leader in services, Christopher Lovelock has been honored by the American Marketing Association’s prestigious Award for Career Contributions in the Services Discipline. In 2005 his article with Evert Gummesson, “Whither Services Marketing?  In Search of a New Paradigm and Fresh Perspectives” won the AMA’s Best Services Article Award and was a finalist for the IBM award for the best article in the Journal of Service Research. Earlier, he received a best article award from the Journal of Marketing. Recognized many times for excellence in case writing, he has twice won top honors in the BusinessWeek “European Case of the Year” Award.
