Glen Roberts

Glen has a diverse, dynamic, and solid background, as a senior executive in the corporate world. He has successfully achieved revenues of $30-800 million for public and private Fortune 500 companies, and he has done it in many industries, such as oil and gas, a national retail franchise, and multi-media TV advertising and custom design networks, nationally. He’s been directly accountable to CEO/Presidents and Boards of Directors, and responsible for defining, developing, implementing, and delivering corporate directives.

Glen excels at Corporate and Business Development, Strategic Direction and Leadership, Marketing and Sales, and Human Resources. He also boasts an MBA and has the savvy and talent to cross mediums, product lines, and services.

Despite all Glen’s accolades and accomplishments, his passion is for people. Along with his many successes, he’s also witnessed his share of ‘pathetic’ leadership that spawns cultural frustrations, that frequently demoralizes front-line employees, disengages employees, and results in non-development of front-line staff and ongoing re-organizational changes, sometimes three times per year. He’s watched the costs, growth, and successes go down the toilet and never come close to reaching their potential, all due to a lack of commitment to the culture and the people.

“I have always pushed the envelop with my CEO’s/Presidents about the culture and a few times I took it on the chin and lost my job for challenging them.”

By choice, Glen is currently an entrepreneur consulting in varied capacities, across diverse verticals, and in many settings. His true passion is making a difference in the effectiveness of people, at mass in organizations.

“I was just frankly sick and tired of senior level leaders being awful, non confident leaders. Many were inverts and afraid to be open about their business needs to confront their staff on how to achieve or succeed profit and grow revenues.”
