Workplace innovator. Founder of the Center for Hispanic Leadership and the Center for Innovation and Humanity. Author of Earning Serendipity: 4 Skills for Creating and Sustaining Good Fortune in Your Work. Fast-rising corporate executive. Highly sought-after keynote speaker by Fortune 500 companies. Glenn Llopis has vision, drive, and a passion to help create a global workplace that will give employees new purpose, put a premium on innovation, and maintain ethical leadership.
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 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 made appearances on local and national TV, including Telemundo, CNN, Fox, ABC, NBC, Univision and was featured on Al Punto with Jorge Ramos. He has published numerous articles in business publications around the world 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 he is a lecturer at universities across the country and serves as a mentor for Junior Achievement. He is an active member of the Kellogg Innovation Network and serves on the advisory board of the Society and Business Lab at the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California.
