Pattie Sellers    

Co-Founder & Partner at SellersEaston Media; Executive Director of Fortune MPW Summits

Pattie Sellers, who never joined a sorority or other women's group at U.Va., chairs Fortune's annual "Most Powerful Women Summit," the preeminent gathering of women leaders in business, philanthropy, government, academia, and the arts. And every year since the summit’s launch in 1998, she has helped oversee Fortune's "Most Powerful Women in Business" cover package.

Sellers has written some of Fortune's most talked-about cover stories, including "Can Meg Whitman Save California?" about the former president and chief executive officer of eBay who is currently a Republican candidate for governor of California; "The $100 Billion Woman," about Melinda Gates; "I Cannot Be Destroyed," about Martha Stewart; and "Oprah Inc.," about Oprah Winfrey.

Her favorite subjects are powerful people who experience a dramatic life change and find new ways to use their power.

Sellers grew up in Allentown, Pa., graduated from the University of Virginia in 1982, and started at Fortune in 1984. She began her career in business journalism by covering the big consumer brand companies.

Last year, she launched a blog called Postcards, which explores navigating a career at the pinnacle of power (or what you do to get there someday). Via Postcards, she gives daily insight into the lives of super-achievers, and features guest posts by CEOs and other leaders.
