Glen Wakeman comes from a background in business and finance, the area of study he pursued at the University of Chicago and earned a bachelor’s degree in (http://www.glenwakeman.com/). Glen Wakeman began his career in the business development department of GE Capital, and he was gradually promoted to become a manager in that department. GE’s Board of Directors even commended him as a leading model for leadership. During his time as leader of this company, he traveled abroad and had over $15 billion in assets he was tasked with managing.
Glen Wakeman has relied on five aspects of business strategy that he believes dictate its long-term success. First, he’s about execution or making sure the business is producing the services according to its goals. Second, he’s about governance and making sure the business has the right policies and hierarchy in place. Third, he has a high emphasis on human capital both in terms of employee and client relationships. And finally, Glen Wakeman values leadership and businesses who foster an environment about it, and risk management. Wakeman has been helping smaller company executives bring these aspects to their companies and is currently working with the leaders of Dreamfunded and Sitter Bees.
