Glen Wakeman is the CEO of Launchpad Holdings LLC, which he co-founded in 2015. He began his career by earning a B.S. in Economics and Finance from the University of Scranton in 1981. He went on to earn an M.B.A. in Finance from the University of Chicago in 1993. He then took a job in business development from GE Capital. It was not long before his gift for leadership was recognized and he ascended in the GE Capital ranks for more than 20 years. His last project here was legendary: He served as CEO of GE Money Latin America, building a 9-country cooperative which in turn resulted in more than $12 billion in net assets.
His business leadership soon became so respected that he became an esteemed mentor for many young business leaders. He aids in personal one-on-on influence, but he also aids the entire business community via his business blog. Some of his favored subjects: business transformation, global affairs, emerging markets, and leadership. Glen Wakeman focuses his leadership attentions to five key performance areas: execution (integrating process, technology, and people), governance, human capital (aligning vision, strategy, and tactics), leadership (preparing the company for change), and risk management (https://www.slideshare.net/GlenWakeman).
He has employed his tactics all over the world throughout the years. Over the course of time, he has lived in six countries and has overseen business operations in 30. He has received local, national, and international business leadership awards. Glen Wakeman does not appear to be slowing down or going along on cruise control in any way. He is committed to a continuing rise upward and forward. He has a vision of ever greater things in the future of the business world. And he wants to be a part of shaping and creating that world.
