He received his PhD (awarded with summa cum laude) from University GH Essen and completed his postdoctoral stage with his habilitation on “Flexible Standardization” at Ruhr-University Bochum. Between 1993 and 2001, he worked under supervision of Prof. Dr. Marion Steven at both universities – Essen and Bochum – as research assistant in the fields of management accounting, operations management, and corporate environmental management. After completing his habilitation he was appointed Professor of Environmental and Technology Management at University of Bayreuth. Between 2002 and 2011 he held the chair of Value Chain Management with special focus on Small and Medium sized Enterprises at University of Siegen where he founded the SMI (Small and Medium Sized Enterprise Institute Siegen) in 2003, which he headed until September 2011. Since October 2011 he holds the Chair of Management Accounting at RWTH Aachen University. His international experience includes multiple visiting professorships at University of Colorado at Boulder and Clemson University. His practical experience comprises more than two years of work in the furniture industry as well as more than 50 projects with industrial firms mainly in the fields of strategic management, management accounting, and process optimization. Besides having published in top business journals, he has been member of several scientific boards, e.g. of the FOKOS-Institute, the Gesellschaft für Operations Research (GOR e.V.). and BAUM e.V. Peter Letmathe has published his research in several top journals such as the Journal of Operations Management, the European Journal of Operational Research (EJOR), OR Spectrum and the Zeitschrift für Betriebswirtschaft.
