Gary Glenn spent the majority of his career in media communication and the advertising industry working in various radio and television stations around the country. Beginning his career at Grey Advertising in New York, he landed a job just out of college in graphic production. Gary quickly moved into account service and continued his career in advertising until moving to media sales at WTIX radio in New Orleans, Louisiana. He spent the next ten years as a sales executive for several media organizations including KTXH-TV in Houston Texas and KPLR-TV in St. Louis. In 1986 Gary took a position as a senior planning consultant with Impact Resources, a research and strategic planning consultancy in Columbus Ohio where he supervised research and strategic planning projects for various media and Fortune 500 companies. While at Impact Resources, Gary developed several programs to track retail buying behavior and trade area analysis. In 1989, Gary started his own consulting firm specializing in marketing research and strategic market planning. He successfully sold the firm in 1993 staying on for the transition and then took a position as Vice President of Sales and Marketing with Tasco, an international distributor of sport and recreational optics products located in Miami Florida. Overseeing all aspects of marketing and public relations, Gary completely restructured the company’s marketing and sales systems establishing new markets in the US, Europe, Asia and Latin America.

Gary moved to ABC/Disney where he was Director of Sales over the Chicago group of radio stations. In 2001, Gary left ABC and co-founded NewsWire One with the concept that internet technology could dramatically improve the process of corporate news distribution. NewsWire One was acquired in 2005 and Gary transitioned the firm through 2006. Entrepreneurialism has always been in his blood so Gary decided to start StitchMine Custom Embroidery in 2006.
