About Joshua T. Beck
Joshua T. Beck founded the Northwest Marketing Research Symposium (formerly the Oregon Marketing Research Symposium) in 2017. His goals were to build community among marketing scholars (especially those in the region), to facilitate the exchange of research in progress, and to give doctoral students an opportunity to share their research with a friendly audience before entering the academic job market. Josh passed away tragically on April 6, 2023, at the age of 37. He was well-respected and admired among his colleagues, academics, and students—and was an especially supportive mentor of PhD students. We are pleased to remember Josh by naming the symposium in his honor.
