Glenn Llopis
Glenn is the Founder of the Center for Hispanic Leadership and the Center for Innovation and Humanity. He is the Author of Earning Serendipity: 4 Skills for Creating and Sustaining Good Fortune in Your Work. His mission is to create a global workplace that will give Hispanic professionals new purpose, put a premium on innovation, and maintain ethical leadership on driving performance development.
The son of Cuban immigrants who were victims of Castro's revolution, Glenn combines an immigrant’s perspective, and a UCLA education, with fast-tracked years at the Gallo Wine Company and Sunkist where he became the youngest senior manager in the company's 100-year history. Leading the successful turnaround of Sunkist's juice beverage division opened the door for his next endeavor, as the vice president of the $1 billion Norway Seafood Co. at only 30 years old. The result was a transformation of that company, as Glenn brought the voices of all its employees into the company debate about its future for the first time in its history.
In the decade since, Glenn has parlayed his executive and organizational experience into innovative ventures that have been featured in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Larry King Live, Good Morning America, The Financial Times, Advertising Age, Brandweek, MSNBC, and Yahoo! News. He has published more than 30 articles appearing in these and other business publications and has successfully launched several new business ventures. Glenn is the former Chairman of the Executive-2-Executive Mentoring Program Committee at the University of California at Irvine, and Faculty Lecturer at the Leatherby Center for Entrepreneurship and Business Ethics at Chapman University, and the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. Glenn also serves as a mentor for Junior Achievement and it an active member of the Renaissance Weekend think-tank think-tank.
