Glen Wakeman was born to lead and succeed. Wakeman graduated from the University of Scranton with a BS in Economics and Finance and eventually garnered an MBA in Finance from the University of Chicago. He began what would become an impressive career at GE Capital, which led to him becoming the CEO and President of the Doral Financial Corporation. Doral Financial Corporation was an inefficient, non-compliant holding company. Glen Wakeman overhauled the entire company, turning it into an extremely profitable community bank with a $2.7 billion standalone operation in the United States.
Glen Wakeman has spent the last two decades revolutionizing the way businesses perform. Wakeman is not only a serial entrepreneur, but he’s also a prolific writer who uses his blog to inspire and educate up-and-coming executives. He’s mentored numerous start-ups including Sitter Bees and Dreamfunded. He has also been awarded countless awards around the world for his dedication and guidance in all aspects of the business.
In 2015, Glen Wakeman took his penchant for mentoring a step further. He teamed up with fellow entrepreneur Rick Cano to introduce LaunchPad Holdings LLC. LaunchPad Holdings uses the same five-step performance methodology that Wakeman is famous for to help start-ups reach their full potential (Ideamensch). Wakeman loves matching money with ideas, so when he realized that so many start-ups, with so much potential, were failing he found a way to combine one of his interests with a needed industry resource.
LaunchPad gives burgeoning businesses a chance to not only create a better product but to grow a business empire that will be successful for years to come. LaunchPad works by asking the right questions, identifying possible risks and devising a clear and concise business plan.
Glen Wakeman is excited about the future. He’s especially excited about how machine learning is going to change the world of business. Wakeman expects technology to greatly improve how businesses make decisions, along with the speed and overall quality of their services.
