Glen Wakeman graduated from the University of Scranton with a bachelor’s degree in Economics and Finance, and next achieved an MBA from the University of Chicago. After a long career in the business and finance sector that spans over twenty years, he is now the CEO of SAAS Company and LaunchPad holdings LLC. During his career life, he was well known for his entrepreneurial and mentorship spirit with most of his work involving the creation of new performance methodologies and guidance for start-ups. He has also held different positions at Doral financial corporation and GE Capital.
Walkman is famous for his five-step performance methodology that focuses on business execution, leadership power, and human capital.
As a successful writer and investor, Wakeman inspires people on everything ranging from administrative strategies to fiscal economies. Additionally, his diverse experience in divestitures, corporate management, and emerging markets has not only made him a highly sought for counsel but also a keen market strategist (http://www.glenwakeman.com/glen-wakeman-blogs/). That aside, he is passionate about all aspects of business development and innovation.
Given that he runs his business operations in more than 30 regions and also a resident of six different countries, Glen Wakeman is one of the world-class business leaders who’s worth recognition. The idea for starting LaunchPad Holdings came from talented startups and given that he is skilled in matching money with ideas the initial stages wasn’t all that difficult. Glen notes that people tend to misunderstand the difference between a plan and idea. That’s why he streamlined the plan building process by coming up with a simple software platform, and that’s what led to the formulation of LaunchPad Holdings.
Although there are different trends in the business market today, Wakeman is excited on how machine learning can handle various business problems. The good thing about machine learning is that individuals can generate vast improvements when it comes to quality, speed and decision making. Although the advancements in technology come in handy in our daily operations, Glen notes that people might end up losing their privacy. That aside, his work requires him to be more productive and given his high curiosity he can persevere through his problem-solving methods.
