The Production and Operations Management Society (POMS) created the POMS Distinguished Service Award in its annual meeting in Reno, April 29, 2011 to recognize contributions made by its members to the growth of the Society.
In its quest to identify the most deserving person to receive the first award, it was no surprise that the POMS Board, consisting of 28 people from around the world, unanimously and very enthusiastically voted in its meeting in Chicago, April 20, 2012, that the first POMS Distinguished Service Award should be given to Dr. Sushil K. Gupta, POMS Executive Director, Professor at Florida International University (FIU), USA. Sushil was presented with the award during the POMS awards ceremony luncheon on April 22, 2012 in Chicago.
