Glenn grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago, moved to Oregon in 1983 to attend University of Portland, and never looked back. He has over 30 years of experience that span the business, nonprofit, government, and faith-based sectors. For roughly 11 years, Glenn worked as a software developer, implementation team leader, and business development executive on behalf of several multi-national corporations. He spent another 12 years working in the government, nonprofit, and business sectors to promote sustainability and economic development in green building and clean technology. The remainder of his career has been in service to the nonprofit, education, and faith communities as a coordinator and facilitator of human services. Glenn's unique set of skills and diverse experience makes him well-suited for the role of VAN's Executive Director.
His interests are as varied as his career, some of which are choral singing, rowing, camping, hiking, and yoga. He's certified to teach the latter. Keeping tabs on his two daughters is also a favorite volunteer pastime.
