Marketing and Finance Gets a New Chair

Jan 15, 2022 12:00 AM

Dr. Ali Ashraf, Associate Professor of Finance, has been appointed as Chair of the Department of Marketing and Finance beginning Spring 2022. Dr. Ashraf came to FSU in Spring 2013. He succeeds Dr. Carol Gaumer, Professor of Marketing, to serve in this role.

Additionally, upon the sudden death of Dr. Eyad Youssef in September 2021, Dr. Ashraf stepped into the role of the MBA Program Coordinator and will remain in that role in addition to fulfilling Department Chair duties at the present time.

Dr. Carol Gaumer has served as Chair of Marketing and Finance since Summer 2004. As the longest serving Chair in the College and recipient of multiple awards and recognitions including the 2015 President’s Distinguished Faculty Award, Dr. Gaumer has served her department, the College, the University, and broader community in a staggering number of ways over all these years.

Thank you, Dr. Gaumer, for your dedicated service during your tenure as Chair and best wishes as you return to a full-time faculty role!
