Oleg Petrenko is an Assistant Professor of Management at Texas Tech University. His
research focus is micro-foundations of strategy. In particular, he focuses on dealing
with two broad questions. First, his research asks how executive characteristics (e.g.,
narcissism, charisma, assertiveness, and core self-evaluations) affect decision making
and performance. His second research question refers to how social structure can affect
performance. Oleg's research can be characterized as interdisciplinary, developing
work that spreads across different levels of analysis in management (e.g., corporations,
inter-firm networks, teams, and individuals). His focus on working with a multi-level
perspective is motivated by conviction that management research needs to continue
to strengthen and develop the conversation across organizational levels of analysis.
Oleg's research has been published in the Strategic Management Journal and the Organizational Psychology Review. He also presented papers at professional meetings and academic seminars worldwide.
Before becoming an academic, Dr. Petrenko occupied a senior management position in
a foreign chemical manufacturing company.
