Glenn Hansen has over 25 years in software engineering, product development, information technology and consulting who drives a culture of innovation and excellence through servant leadership, transparency, collaboration and mentoring.  Glenn is a “Hands-on” leader who has helped teams develop award winning products and helped companies achieve multi-million dollar contracts with sustaining revenue streams.  His focus has been empowering individuals and encouraging “out of the box” thinking, even if some of those ideas fail as the road to success is paved with lots of failures along the way.  His mission is to grow successful servant leaders and get out of their way.
