New Deans Announced

John Bingham named associate dean; Eric Teel named administrative dean

PROVO, Utah – Jul 01, 2019 – BYU Marriott School of Business dean Brigitte C. Madrian has announced the appointments of John Bingham as an associate dean and Eric Teel in the newly created position of administrative dean. These assignments took effect on 1 July.

“John and Eric will be incredible assets to BYU Marriott’s leadership team,” Madrian says. “Each of these individuals has strong administrative experience and a deep commitment to BYU. I’m grateful for their willingness to accept these assignments and look forward to working with both of them.”

Together with Madrian and associate dean Keith Vorkink, Bingham will help define college initiatives to develop and support academic programs, and Teel will be responsible for financial and administrative functions within the college.

Bingham, a professor of organizational behavior and human resources, joined BYU Marriott in 2005 after receiving his PhD from Texas A&M University. In 2012 Bingham received the Ascendant Scholar award from the Western Academy of Management. He served as director of the BYU MBA and Executive MBA programs from 2013 to 2016, and, most recently, as chair of BYU Marriott’s Department of Management from 2017 to 2019.

“I feel privileged to work alongside Dean Madrian and others to help BYU Marriott students ‘become outstanding leaders and positively influence in a world we wish to improve,’” Bingham says. “My hope is to help our college accomplish that mission in relevant and meaningful ways.”

Teel came to BYU Marriott in 2015 as the new college controller after working as chief financial officer for more than ten years at multiple companies. He became assistant dean of finance and administration in 2017, providing leadership in both defining and implementing the financial strategies of the college. He holds a master’s degree in accountancy from BYU Marriott, along with CPA and CMA certifications.   

“I'm grateful for the confidence and trust Dean Madrian has shown in creating this position and asking me to serve,” Teel says. “We have many great administrative teams throughout the college, and I'm looking forward to continuing to partner with and support those teams as we strive to fulfill our mission at BYU Marriott.”

Former associate dean Michael Thompson will be returning to the management department to teach in the Executive MBA program after serving in the deans office for the last fourteen years. Steve Glover, who also served as an associate dean, will begin a one-year professional development leave after which he will return to teaching in BYU Marriott’s School of Accountancy.

“I am personally thankful for both of these colleagues and their selfless dedication to our students, faculty, staff, and the school,” Madrian says. “Both Michael and Steve have given wise and energetic leadership to BYU Marriott, and we are deeply grateful for their contributions.”

The BYU Marriott School of Business prepares men and women of faith, character, and professional ability for positions of leadership throughout the world. Named for benefactors J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott, the school is located at Brigham Young University, the largest privately owned, church-sponsored university in the United States.
