Alumni Success

Iona University alumna Chelsea Hogan ’07 has been recognized in “The Top 25 Women Leaders of Scarsdale for 2023” by Women We Admire for her positive impact and leadership at Triton International. Triton International is the world’s largest container leasing company with a mission to support the supply chains that connect the world.

Hogan is the chief human resource officer and senior vice president at Triton. In her role, she leads the organization’s people strategy in over 21 offices across 16 countries. 

As outlined in an article from The Women We Admire, Hogan has “revamped the human resources function by implementing several people-centric initiatives designed to align Triton’s talent acquisition, performance management, training and development, succession planning, and other critical components with its overarching business goals”.

Hogan has always been interested in human behavior and wanted a deeper understanding of people. It wasn’t until she stumbled upon human resources that she found her niche.

“A company is only as good as its people; people drive results and culture. In HR, I have the opportunity to nurture, cultivate and inspire them,” Hogan said. “I quite like that the function as a whole is neither an art nor a science, every day is different and presents unique challenges.”

The Eastchester native earned her undergraduate degree in psychology in 2007. Hogan credits Iona for giving her the skills necessary to thrive in her work environment. 

“My degree helped me to better understand what motivates people and how people and culture impact performance,” Hogan said. “The better you understand your people, the better you understand the organization as a whole.”

Hogan’s love for Iona started at a young age when she would spend every summer from the ages of 7 to 13 at the Iona College Day Camp playing on the football field, in the gym and the pool. She has enjoyed getting to watch Iona expand throughout the community and especially abroad.

“It is a great school with strong values and has prepared many generations of students for successful, professional lives,” Hogan said.

Hogan believes that everyone has their own path to chart, and that it will look and feel different for everybody. 

“Don’t be afraid to take risks, challenge yourself and fail – that is when you learn the most, especially of yourself,” she said.
