After training and managing an 8-person, US-focused diversity sourcing team at State Street,
one of the world's largest custody banks, from 2015-17, he was asked to develop a global
central sourcing function for the company, based primarily out of India. Since rolling that out,
he continues to expand its effectiveness with recruitment marketing and automation projects.
From 2010-15, he trained and led an online-focused offshore team and a junior onshore team
focused on front-end candidate pipelining to support North America Recruiting at Avanade, a
$3 billion IT consulting firm owned by Accenture and Microsoft. He also led some global
recruiting training and sourcing initiatives.
Glenn was a senior Internet researcher for Microsoft from July 2005 to September 2008,
focusing on competitive intelligence and proactive international sourcing. He sourced the two
previous years at Getronics North America (2003-05) where his work contributed meaningfully
to two finalist nominations in 2005's ERE’s Excellence Awards.
In between Avanade and Microsoft, he served for two years as full-time Vice President of
JobMachine / Arbita Consulting & Education Services (ACES) with Shally Steckerl as a
consultant to recruiting teams of corporations and staffing firms of varied sizes and industries,
including delivering workforce development workshops, seminars and webinars on sourcing-
related topics to improve candidate pipelining, productivity, tools, systems, and organizational
Glenn entered the recruiting field in 1996 by founding one of the first newspaper-owned
regional job boards, JobSmart, which won the industry’s two most prestigious awards in 1998:
the EPpy Award (Editor & Publisher) and the Digital Edge Award (Newspaper Assn. of
America). In 1997, Glenn created one of the recruiting industry's first Internet sourcing
seminars, later known as Recruiting-Online.com, training recruiters and sourcers from
hundreds of companies ranging from the Fortune 500 to small staffing firms, in a self-paced,
fully online course. He was the official Internet recruiting certification instructor in 2000 for
SHRM's Northeast Human Resources Association (NEHRA), in 2001 for the Boston Herald's
Jobfind.com and in 2002 for the Boston Globe's BostonWorks.
Glenn remains a leading innovator in online sourcing methods and application of Internet
tools to recruiting. Besides presenting at conferences and penning articles for recruiting trade
publications and portals, in 2014 he co-founded and still runs the Boston Area Talent Sourcing
Association and occasionally blogs about Advanced Online Recruiting Techniques. He is a
graduate of Yale University.
