FAIRFIELD — Sacred Heart University’s new academic building on the corner of Park Avenue and Jefferson Street in Fairfield will be named for Frank (SHU Class of 1969) and Marisa Martire. The building will house the John F. Welch College of Business and the Department of Communications & Media Studies.

“We are honoring the Martires in recognition of years of service and leadership as well as a multi-million dollar philanthropic commitment to the University,” said James T. Morley, Jr., chair of SHU’s board of trustees.


Bridgeport native Frank Martire earned a bachelor’s in economics from Sacred Heart before embarking on a distinguished career in finance and technology. The former CEO of Metavante Corp. is presently chairman and CEO of FIS.
