  • Author Bio

    Dr. Kimball has been the Professor of Management at Elms College in Chicopee, MA, for nearly three decades. He is the Chair of The Division of Business which includes majors in Accounting, Management, Marketing, Sport Management, and Health Care Management. Professor Kimball has taught Business Strategy courses at the undergraduate and at the MBA level.

    As a former employee in the old AT&T he is often interested in the mobile communications industry and the technology used in similar industries. Before entering the field of teaching full‐time, Dr. Kimball also worked at Mass Mutual Life Insurance Company as a corporate trainer. At times, Dr. Kimball's early work experiences at McDonald's can be found in his views since he still believes in the McDonald's credo of cleanliness, service, and value. Dr. Kimball completed his dissertation about business mission and written mission statements while finishing his doctorate degree in Management Systems. Dr. Kimball is a co‐author of two textbooks. The first textbook is in the 3rd edition and serves as an introductory book on Sport Management. The second book is in the 2nd edition and is about Entrepreneurship.
