Dr. Matthew Sonfield

The research contributions of Dr. Matthew C. Sonfield, the Robert F. Dall Distinguished Professor in Business, continue to garner praise. Dr. Sonfield joined the Hofstra faculty in 1975 and is currently a professor in the Department of Management, Entrepreneurship and General Business. He holds degrees from Cornell University, Harvard University and New York University.

Dr. Sonfield’s scholarly research and writing has centered largely in the areas of entrepreneurship and small business, with a recent focus on family and minority businesses. Apart from his academic research, he is also an internationally-recognized expert on the history of the luxury automobile industry in the 1920’s and 1930’s, especially the custom body builders of that era. He has close to 300 publications, more than half of which are solely authored.

Since 2008, Dr. Sonfield has published ten articles in high-level academic research journals and 26 papers in the proceedings of major academic conferences. Several of his publications have won awards. Most recently his journal article, “Non-Family-Members in the Family Business Management Team: A Multinational Investigation” received the 2010 Zarb School Dean’s Research Award, and a paper from which this article was developed was named the “Best Empirical or Conceptual Paper” at the 2010 Annual National Conference of the Small Business Institute. His 2004 article, “First, Second and Third-Generation Family Firms: A Comparison,” published in the highly-ranked journal, Family Business Review, was named “one of the most influential readings in the field of family business” for the period 1991-2005. He has also occasionally published in applied, rather than scholarly, journals, including two articles in the Harvard Business Review.

Dr. Sonfield’s present research activity involves the continuing development of an international database of family firms, currently numbering over 700 businesses in eight countries throughout the world. This database, which continues to grow, provides a wide range of information on which to base his future research projects.
