Occupation: Assistant professor of management and strategy at Chatham University

Background: Liozu is becoming a world-renowned expert and consultant on pricing following the publication of 30 papers and five books on the topic. He created the Western Pennsylvania Pricing Professionals Group and sits on the board for the international Professional Pricing Society.

Education: MBA in marketing from Cleveland State University; master's degree in innovation management from IAE Toulouse School of Management in France; Ph.D. in management from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.

Quote: “Pricing is the most neglected element of the market, and it's one of the most powerful levers of the profit-and-loss statement, yet only 5 percent of Fortune 500 companies have dedicated pricing teams, and only a small fraction of small- and medium-sized businesses actually manage pricing with intention. The more you manage it as a discipline, the better your results are.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
