Retirement reception to be held for Tomkovick
Faculty and staff in the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Department of Management and Marketing are hosting a reception in honor of Dr. Chuck Tomkovick who retired in November 2012 for health reasons.
The reception will be held Wednesday, January 9, 2013 from 3:30 to 5 pm in the Cargill Collaboration Center which is located in Schneider Hall Room 203. A brief program will be held at 4 pm. Light refreshments will be served. The event is open to the public.
Tomkovick’s friends and colleagues have established a fund in his name through the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.
Tomkovick taught marketing courses for the UW-Eau Claire Department of Management and Marketing and the UW-Eau Claire Continuing Education for over 20 years. Throughout his academic career he received many awards including the UW-Eau Claire Excellence in Teaching award, which he received twice. Outside the university community, Tomkovick was perhaps best known for the Super Bowl advertising research he conducted with UW-Eau Claire professor of marketing Rama Yelkur. Their work has been cited in national media such as AdWeek, Advertising Age, CNN Money, Kiplinger, LiveScience, New York Times, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal.
For more information about the reception or the named fund established in Tomkovick’s honor, contact Dr. Kristy Lauver, interim chair, UW-Eau Claire Department of Management and Marketing.
