Sponsored by the AICPA and bestowed to individuals who have made an impression in management accounting education, research and practice, Chenhall, Ph.D., was recognized for his teachings as a professor of accounting and finance at Monash University in Clayton Victoria, Australia.

The award was presented at the 2012 AAA Management Accounting Section’s mid-year meeting.

“The AICPA is very pleased to recognize Professor Chenhall’s significant contributions to management accounting,” said Carol Scott, AICPA’s vice president of business, industry and government, in a statement. “Robert’s research contributes to a better understanding of the complex factors impacting the performance of organizations, and is important to our members in business and their ability to add value to the decision-making processes in their companies.”

Chenhall is a co-author of Competitiveness: Best Practice in Australia and publishes regularly in international academic journals and serves on some of their editorial boards. He is currently researching how strategic management accounting systems could be designed to assist Australian commercial organizations in developing internationally competitive strategies.

“Robert has contributed greatly to our understanding of how contextual factors like uncertainty and organizational design influence the causes and performance effects of management accounting,” stated Anne Farrell, PricewaterhouseCoopers endowed assistant professor chair in accountancy at Miami University Farmer School of Business. “Robert continues to publish and has positively impacted the careers of many colleagues through his teaching, mentoring and collaborative efforts, making him a very deserving recipient of the Lifetime Contribution Award.”
