Ranft named Exxon Faculty Fellow

Annette Lytle Ranft was recently named the Exxon-Wayne Calloway Faculty Fellow at Wake Forest University.

Ranft is an assistant professor of business in the Wayne Calloway School of Business and Accountancy.

The fellowship was created with a gift by the Exxon Corporation in memory of Wayne Calloway, who died in July 1998. Calloway served on Exxon’s board of directors from 1988 until his death.

The fellowship is to support the scholarship and professional development of professors during their first three years in the Calloway school.

Ranft, who joined the Calloway school this fall, specializes in strategic management. Prior to Wake Forest, Ranft was on the faculty at West Virginia University. She has also worked as a systems consultant for AT&T and Electronic Data Systems.

Ranft has a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Appalachian State University, a master’s in management from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a doctorate in strategic management from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
