There are exciting times at the Peay as we welcome two new department chairs to the APCOB. With the addition of these chairs, the leadership of the College of Business is significantly strengthened.
Dr. Susan Cockrell was recently awarded the position of chair to the Accounting, Finance, and Economics Department at the APSU College of Business. This is Dr. Cockrell’s second stint at APSU; she taught here as an associate professor from 2000 – 2005. She most recently comes to us from the University of Birmingham-Southern College, where she taught from 2007 until 2011. Dr. Cockrell received her Ph.D. in Accounting from The University of Alabama in 1993. Both her Master of Administrative Science and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration were received at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (in 1985 and 1984). She became a CPA in 2001.
Dr. Kenny Holt is our new chair of Management, Marketing, and General Business within the College of Business. Dr. Holt has taught at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, and has taught courses in China and France as a visiting professor. He received his Ph.D. in Management with a concentration in Organizational Behavior and a minor in Strategic Management in 2010 from the University of Memphis. Dr. Holt received his Master of Science in Economics in 1985 from LSU and his Bachelor of Science from Union University in 1983. Dr. Holt has a history of community involvement including a stint as city council representative in Jackson, TN.
