Josh Weston Hon. D.Eng. '96: Leadership Principles for Corporate Growth

School of Business Seminar Series

Josh Weston speaks at a podium at the Stevens Gala. President Nariman Farvardin is visible in the background.

The founder, honorary chairman and former CEO of Automatic Data Processing — a Roseland, NJ-based HR services provider for 610,000 companies worldwide — Dr. Josh Weston has years of experience in corporate leadership. In an evening with faculty and students from the School of Business at Stevens, Dr. Weston will discuss leadership principles that were useful to him in guiding ADP to 164 consecutive quarters of double-digit growth, measured in both revenue and earnings per share. 

Dr. Weston earned his undergraduate degree in economics from the City College of New York and a master's in economics from the University of New Zealand. Though he didn't attend Stevens, Dr. Weston has been a champion for the university, dating to his friendship with former Stevens President Kenneth Rogers; in 1996, Stevens awarded him an honorary doctorate in engineering. 

Among his many contributions to Stevens, Dr. Weston has supported the Josh Weston Term Scholarship Fund, the First LEGO League Challenge Fund and the CIESE Summer Salaries Fund. Notably, he has led support of the Pinnacle Scholars Program, a suite of benefits Stevens awards to exceptional incoming freshmen. The inaugural Class of 2019 cohort of 66 Pinnace Scholars, who can remain in the program every year until graduation, receive tuition support plus extra opportunities for research, faculty mentoring, study abroad, cultural experiences and more. 

A reception at 5:30 p.m. in the Babbio Center Atrium will precede Dr. Weston's talk. You must RSVP to attend this event.
