With approximately ten years of Public Affairs, Public Relations and Association Management (primarily in Brussels), Glenn understands the political decision-making landscape with the aim of creating effective communication strategies, whether it is to have an impact on a piece of legislation in the EU pipeline or to increase political attention on specific issues of interest to clients.
REPRESENTATION & OUTREACH
Glenn first began his career in Brussels at the American Chamber of Commerce to the EU which provided an excellent stepping stone to become Account Executive at Hume Brophy. His position there focused mostly on maximising outreach capabilities for client interests and their visibility vis-à-vis EU and national governmental and non-governmental organisations. Thereafter, he became a representative in the Lottomatica Group Brussels office – globally the largest provider of state/national lottery services and gaming technology solutions – where he was responsible for raising the company’s profile and establishing it as a key source of information for EU and national policy- and law-makers.
His last position before deciding to build his own consultancy (T&P Consulting), was Executive Director for the European Casino Association. There he was responsible for establishing and sustaining the voice of the European casino industry on the wider international stage, as well as guaranteeing the smooth running of the association’s internal infrastructure.
Glenn’s global outreach capacities are partly due to his constant life as an expatriate. Born in Germany to a German father and Romanian mother, he lived in the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Pakistan until he went to University in the UK. Thereafter, he moved to Brussels, having established a network beyond the EU context of decision-making.
EDUCATION & LANGUAGES
At the Univeristy of Portsmouth, he received a Bachelor’s with Honours for European Studies and International Relations. Subsequently he received a Master’s in Diplomacy at the University of Reading.
Glenn is fluent in German, English, French, Romanian. He also speaks Italian and Dutch.
