Professional Biography

Dr. McGrath is an full time professor at Strayer University’s Delaware County campus in Springfield, Pa., where he teaches undergraduate and graduate-level business and management courses in human resources, organizational behavior and operations. Dr. McGrath has been with Eastern since 2008. In addition to his teaching responsibilities at Eastern, McGrath is an adjunct faculty member for Penn State Brandywine, Millersville University, West Chester University and Delaware County Community College. He has also served for the past 18 years as president of CBM Productions, a special event entertainment company that provides music and lighting services.

“It’s my top priority as an educator to create a dynamic classroom environment that helps my students think about business and management concepts in a new and innovative way,” said McGrath. “Early in my career, when I worked as a TV studio page and for major Hollywood films, I learned the importance of bringing information and stories to life vividly in order to increase understanding and retention. I have held on to that foundational belief throughout my career and apply it to all the classes I teach.”

Previously, he held marketing positions for Comcast and R2C Group, and he worked for CBS Television City Studios in Los Angeles, Calif., as a studio page. He also worked as a casting and production assistant for the movies “Seabiscuit” and “The Village.”
