Dr Emilio Marti
Emilio Marti is an assistant professor in the Business-Society Management Department at the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM).
Emilio’s research focuses on how pressure from shareholders makes companies more or less sustainable. For example, with Tanja Ohlson, he currently conducts an ethnography at a London-based shareholder engagement fund to explore the conditions under which shareholder engagement can make companies more sustainable. Emilio also explores, with Mark DesJardine, the potentially problematic interplay between pressure from activist hedge funds and the CSR activities of companies.
Emilio joined RSM in 2018 after post-doctoral positions at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, and the Cass Business School, City, University of London. He completed his PhD at the University of Zurich in 2015. His work has been published in the Academy of Management Review and the Journal of Management Studies.
