Curriculum Vitae & Publications

„Top executives matter!“ Based on this fundamental assumption, the assistant professorship will mainly study the impact of the top management on corporate planning & control. In particular, the research focus is on the interaction of top managers’ characteristics and the design and use of management control systems. These topics will be investigated primarily from an upper echelons perspective, which states that strategic choices and subsequent organizational outcomes are greatly influenced by executives’ experiences, values, and personalities.

The assistant professorship has been filled by Dr. Marko Reimer and is affiliated to the Institute for Management and Control (Prof. Dr. Utz Schäffer and Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Jürgen Weber).

Dr. Reimer studied Industrial Engineering and Management at Technische Universität Berlin. After graduating, he worked at TU Berlin as Research Assistant in the field of strategic management accounting and control (Prof. Dr. Ulrich Krystek). He completed his doctorate on the topic of “Management Accountants as Advisors for Top Managers“.
