Adam Fremeth joined the Business Economics and Public Policy group at Ivey in July 2009 after completing his Ph.D. in Strategic Management and Organization at the University of Minnesota. He holds an HBA from Ivey and an M.A. in International Affairs from Carleton University.
Professor Fremeth's research focuses on the intersection of firm strategy and public policy making. He is primarily concerned with how firms both shape and respond to public policy. In particular, his work has helped to better understand how competitive interaction among firms in regulated settings can influence a firm's environmental performance. Ongoing research projects focus on the development of the renewable energy sector in North America, the value of asymmetrical information in regulatory rulings in the electric utility sector, and the patterns of personal campaign contributions by Chief Executive Officers. This research agenda has been supported by a number of grants, including those from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and Carbon Management Canada (CMC). In 2010, Adam was the recipient of the Best Paper Award from the Organizations and the Natural Environment Division of the Academy of Management and a finalist for the William H. Newman Award for outstanding paper based on a dissertation.
