Mr. Glen Wakeman is the CEO of Launchpad Holdings, LLC., since 2015 when he co-founded it as a SAAS corporation. Mr. Wakeman has been known for his guidance offered to startup companies, being a mentor, revolutionary in the business world, and for his entrepreneurial spirit.
What does it mean to “have an entrepreneurial spirit”? This is a way to describe a certain person who has the mindset and thinking attitude of someone who is actively seeking change, instead of letting the said change just happen. A person with an entrepreneurial spirit is someone who is a critical thinker, who is welcoming of critical questions, innovation, service and continuously seeks out ways of improving a situation. Glen Wakeman is all of this and more.
He graduated from the University of Scranton in 1981 with his B.S. in Economics and Finance, and from the University of Chicago in 1993 with an MBA in Finance. His education was just the beginning of a very successful career path he was just embarking upon, in the areas of P&L and business development. He went on to work for GE Capital, while here he was recognized by their Board of Directors as Growth Leadership role model. Glen Wakeman then went on to Doral Financial Corporation, in which he would become CEO and President; eventually to be promoted to the Chairman of the Board at Doral Bank. He also founded Nova Four and managed that company for a while.
Throughout his career, he has worked with businesses that have over 17000 employees and $15 billion in assets (People.equillar). Always applying the same five key performance enhancers is a proven methodology for him: “execution, governance, human capital, leadership and risk management.”
As an investor and writer, Wakeman has been able to write blog posts in which he shares his insight on the current financial affairs internationally, what markets are new and developing, his ideas on current management trends, administrative suggestions, and strategies for business operations. He has been a mentor for many “C-Level Executives” and is counseling executives for Dreamfunded and Sitter Bees at present time.
Glen Wakeman has gained international esteem throughout his great executive career, by living in six separate countries and overseeing the daily operations on 30 regions all around the world.
