Frank May, assistant professor of marketing in the Pamplin College of Business at Virginia Tech, was recently named the Mary F. McVay and Theodore R. Rosenberg Junior Faculty Fellow by the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors.   

The Mary F. McVay and Theodore R. Rosenberg Junior Faculty Fellowship was established in 2004 to provide faculty support for the Pamplin College of Business and to recognize teaching and research excellence.

May received his Ph.D. in business administration from the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina. He joined Virginia Tech as an assistant professor in 2014.

His research focuses on how factors pertaining to time influence self-control decisions. He has already published six articles in one of the field’s top journals, the Journal of Consumer Research — a record that places him among the elite young scholars in his field.

May is developing a strong reputation as an instructor, teaching consumer behavior at the undergraduate level and buyer behavior research at the Ph.D. level. In addition, he works with and actively mentors several marketing doctoral students.

He received his bachelor’s degree in finance from New Jersey City University and an MBA from the University of Minnesota.
