Oliver Koll has earned an MBA at the A.B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University and a PhD in Marketing at the Leopold-Franzens-University in Innsbruck. From 1996 to 2001 he was a member of the marketing faculty at Leopold-Franzens-University while working on his PhD thesis "Stakeholder Responsiveness and Organizational Effectiveness" (Chairs: Hans Mühlbacher, Innsbruck and Arch Woodside, Boston College). After a year at HEC Montreal he became Managing Partner at a marketing strategy consultancy in Innsbruck. He returned to the marketing group as a post-doctoral fellow in March 2006.

  Area of Research:

In his research Oliver studies brands from a stakeholder perspective. Why brands might matter to various stakeholders, how they interpret brand, whether organizations consciously build stakeholder-oriented brands, and how (consistently or inconsistently) stakeholders perceive brands, are issues he investigates.

Besides he also looks at the relationship between brand and store by investigating the effect of brand listings at discounters on consumer behavior (store choice, store switching) und attitude (brand meaning).
