Four Alumni Named as Presidential Leadership ScholarsTopics:
Four HBS alumni are among 59 individuals selected as Presidential Leadership Scholars (PLS) in the program’s fourth year. PLS brings a diverse group of leaders together to collaborate as they learn about leadership through the presidential experiences of George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Lyndon B. Johnson.
The HBS cohort includes:
- Tynesia Boyea-Robinson (MBA 2005), president and CEO of Reliance Methods, a consulting firm that provides human capital strategy and placement solutions for Fortune 500 clients, and author of Just Change: How to Collaborate for Lasting Impact
- John Coleman MBA 2010), managing director and chief administrative officer for alternatives and institution at Invesco and board member of the National Monuments Foundation
- Erik Pickering (MBA 1999), president of Tracers Information Specialists, a data and intelligence services firm
- Ruben Salinas (MBA 2002), cofounder and CEO of Parsagen Diagnostics, an early-stage medical device company focused on women’s health
The members of the 2018 class were selected based on their leadership growth potential and the strength of their personal leadership projects aimed at addressing community or industry problems and improving the civic or social good.
Over the course of the year, the Scholars will travel to each participating presidential center to learn from former presidents, key former administration officials, and leading academics. They will pursue individual leadership projects, develop a network of peers, and exchange ideas with mentors and others who can help them make an impact in their communities.
