He has published numerous articles in the field of consumer psychology and has advanced the understanding of decision-making and choice, information processing, marketing communications, social influence, branding and attachment. Park is also active in executive education nationally and around the world.

“I feel elated and very pleased to receive this lifetime achievement award,” said Park. “This is a recognition of the work I’ve done in the field of consumer psychology for the last 40 years.”

Park will formally receive the award during the SCP’s conference in Las Vegas in February 2012, where he will give the annual fellow’s address.
