PhotoEileen Martinson ’86, CEO of Sparta Systems and chair of Philadelphia University’s Board of Trustees, was interviewed about leadership and her path to success in The New York Times on Jan. 10. When asked what advice she gives to students, she said “they need to develop a personal framework around emotional intelligence. It’s about thinking globally and learning how to communicate.” She also said she encouraged students when speaking at PhilaU’s Convocation to send a written letter thanking whomever helped them get to that day.
