PhD Tufts Fletcher School
Christopher (Rusty) Tunnard teaches Management and Organization at Hult. He is also a member of the International Business faculty at the Fletcher School at Tufts University, where he has recently been appointed the Hitachi Fellow for Technology and International Affairs. For many years, he was a Principal at Arthur D. Little (ADL) in their Travel and Technology practice in Brussels and London. He is a recognized expert on technology-led change in the international communications, travel, and financial service industries. Prior to joining ADL, he directed world-wide strategy and technology partnerships for the Travel Division of American Express TRS Co. He has also run his own consulting firm and has owned and operated a hotel barge company in southern France.
His doctoral dissertation focused on the use of technology in the formation of resistance networks that eventually led to peaceful regime change in Serbia in the 1990s. His current research examines the roles that social networks and social media can play in building up institutions and civil society in post-revolutionary countries, and he is developing analytical methods to examine public and private social networks and their impact on organizations.
