Marilena Gemtou receiving her Worshipful Company of Marketors award at Mansion House, London.

PhD student Marilena Gemtou received a Worshipful Company of Marketors external website award last week for her work on customer revenge behaviour.

Marilena, who was nominated for the award by Professor Nancy Puccinelli, attended a banquet ceremony at Mansion House, London, with Dr Peter Nuttall. As well as the accolade, she received £1,000 in prize money.

Five postgraduate students from different academic institutions got awards for outstanding performance in marketing.

Marilena said:

'I am delighted and honoured.

'It means a lot to me because it indicates that my efforts in the PhD are paying off and that my research appeals to a wider audience having significant implications for firm practices.'

Marilena's work focuses on customer revenge behaviour. Her research suggests those treated badly by organisations experience negative emotions. This motivates them to seek revenge through methods such as bad online reviews through to verbal attacks on employees.

The Worshipful Company of Marketors is one of 110 Livery Companies of the City of London. Each group represents a trade organisation or guild.
