Business Management Professor Promoted
Dr. Daniel Marrone, professor of business management, has been promoted to Distinguished Service Professor. The Board of Trustees reserves this distinction for faculty who epitomize their profession, and in doing so, distinguish themselves, this campus and the State University.
Marrone came to Farmingdale State College in 1987 with six degrees completed. He proceeded to finish his doctoral degree and to pass over 30 certification exams in the process of attaining professional designations. He has notably developed the baccalaureate program in Business Management and continues to diligently expand upon the mission of the School of Business, the college and the University at large. He founded and serves as faculty advisor to two highly acclaimed student groups on campus - the APICS (American Production & Inventory Control Society) Student Chapter and the Sigma Beta Delta International Honors Society in Business, Management and Administration. On a national and international level, he has been instrumental in promoting training and student mentorship. He most recently received APICS's Student Mentor of the Year Award, one of its most highest and prestigious recognitions. Dr. Marrone is an acknowledged contributor to many textbooks, published articles and courseware, and regularly presents to the diverse affiliates of APICS.
In 2008, Dr. Marrone had two articles published in the SUNY University Faculty Senate Bulletin. He is currently working on two additional articles that will be published later this year.
