Announcement of New SIOP Editors
Past Publications Officer
A call for nominations for SIOP’s book Professional Practice and Organizational Frontiers book series editors went out in the October 2011 issue of TIP and appeared on the SIOP website and in the electronic newsletter. The selection process took place over a period of months and involved considerable time and effort from the Publications Board members: Fritz Drasgow, Chuck Lance, Cindy McCauley, Paul Sackett, Lynn Shore, Lois Tetrick, and Scott Highhouse (chair).
The Publications Board unanimously recommended that Nancy Tippins be approved by the executive board as new editor of the Professional Practice Series.
Nancy is a senior vice president and managing principal of Valtera Corporation where she is responsible for the development and execution of firm strategies related to employee selection and assessment. Prior to joining Valtera, Nancy worked as an internal consultant in large Fortune 100 companies, developing and validating selection and assessment tools. She participated in the revision of the Principles for the Use and Validation of Personnel Selection Procedures and sits on the current committees to revise the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing and the new ISO 9000 standards for assessment. Nancy is active in professional affairs and is a past president of SIOP. She is a Fellow of SIOP, the APA, and the Association for Psychological Science (APS).
The Publications Board then unanimously agreed to recommend Rich Klimoski as the new Organizational Frontiers Series editor.
Richard holds a dual appointment as both professor of Psychology and professor of Management in the School of Management at George Mason University. He is a past editor of the Academy of Management Review and served as an associate editor of the Academy of Management Learning and Education journal from 2006-2009. Klimoski is a Fellow of the Academy of Management, APA, APS, and SIOP. Klimoski has received numerous awards and honors and has held many leadership and service positions in scientific/professional societies.
These selections were approved by the Board at this year’s SIOP conference. Congratulations to Nancy and Rich!
