MARCUS AMBE. Creating a Sustainable Impact

Kick-starting a new career at Jackson State University

After 15 years, 7 months at the University of South Africa (UNISA), and 18 years, 8 months in South Africa, I am humbled to kick-start a new page of my professional career at Jackson State University as an Associate Professor of Supply Chain Management. I thank UNISA for providing me with a professional home. Over the years, I had the opportunity to develop and advance my career from a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Associate Professor, and to full Professor (2015). I had the opportunity to serve on various committees and management such as the Chair of the Department, Chairperson of the Tender Committee, and Chair of the Enterprise and Supplier Development Program Steering Committee among others. With support from my collaborators, I embarked on numerous outreach and community engagement projects championing the advancement of supply chain management in South Africa and the African continent. I thank UNISA and the South African National Treasury for the opportunity afforded me to contribute towards the establishment of the Supply Chain Management Interim Council, where I served as the Deputy Chairperson in charge of “Technical Standards and Competencies”. My appreciation to all those who supported and contributed to the activities of the “Supply Chain Research Group” and the “African Institute for Supply Chain Research” (AISCR). Between 2020 and 2022, we organized and rolled out two major Pan African Summits (2020 and 2021), and over 80 webinars on professional development supporting Masters and Doctoral students as well as supply chain management professionals on the latest trends and developments. I look forward to your continuous support and collaboration as we redefine AISCR’s value proposition for 2024.
