Hello! My name is Marvin Bontrager and I’m glad you stopped by my website. I’m currently an Assistant Professor of Management and greatly enjoy teaching. Before that, I was in the private sector for 12 years and worked as an Account Executive in the health insurance industry. I enjoy writing and engaging in continual learning. Now that I’m in academia, I have unique perspectives that I can bring to the classroom based on both practical experience and theoretical knowledge. My research interests include: organizational behavior, organizational culture, work design, and workplace support.

I am also passionate about personal finance. I read a LOT and try to understand as much as I can about the opportunities and pitfalls people face when it comes to their money. There is a thriving online community of personal finance bloggers out there and it’s refreshing to see the increased interest around related topics. There is definitely a need for more discussion in this area.
