Glen Wakeman: A Global Force Throughout the Business World and Community

Business mogul and mentor, Glen Wakeman, has blazed a path of success for anyone seeking to grow their business. As founder and CEO of LaunchPad Holdings, LLC, Glen’s hard work and business acumen has put him in position to not only achieve success at the highest levels but to also show others how to achieve their business goals as well.

 

Graduating from the University of Scranton(PA) and the University of Chicago with a Master’s Degree and a Bachelor’s of Science degree, Glen Wakeman would channel his passion and love for business and finances into a life-changing career at General Electric (GE). At GE, Glen gained the much-needed experience, excelling in the business areas of operations, technology, business development, general, regional and country management. Working at GE Capital for twenty years, Glen Wakeman would live in 6 countries and work in 32 countries across Europe, Asia, and South America. Now with the leadership and business expertise, Glen was ready to embark on his entrepreneurial journey, investing and starting numerous small businesses of his own; something that Glen would find great success in. Under Glen’s leadership, he would transform numerous businesses with more than 17,000 employees and over $15 billion in assets, developing various facets of each company through mergers, acquisitions, integrations, downsizing, new market entries, divestitures, and start-ups.

With a global business approach as a foundation for developing successful businesses, Glen created LaunchPad Holdings, LLC, a SAAS company founded in 2015, that specifies and targets the needs and strategies for other businesses, in order for them to successfully develop. Glen Wakeman concisely explains the embodiment of LaunchPad Holdings, LLC in an interview where he states how, “People don’t always understand, an idea is not a plan itself. So we decided to make plan building easier and more intuitive by designing a simpler software platform. That was the beginning of LaunchPad Holdings.” LaunchPad Holdings, LLC consist of 5 elements: Leadership, Human Capital, Execution, Risk Management and Governance.

 

Although the multi-talented mogul remains heavily active throughout the business community through his mentoring, writing and business ventures, Glen Wakeman still understands the importance of charitable efforts. In the wake of Puerto Rico’s hurricane devastations, Glen took it upon himself to step up and make a generous contribution, donating $1000 to The American Red Cross. For Glen, it is just as important for one to come to the aid of your community in their time of need, as any successful business methodology, proving that he truly appreciates the value of helping others while making this world a better place.

Perry Mandera: the Entrepreneur, the Philanthropist, the Legend.

Perry Mandera is an exceptional businessman, war veteran, and role model. He has over 30 years of experience in the transportation industry and is a strong believer in doing the right thing. Founded on this principle in 1986, Perry Mandera founded the Custom Companies, Inc., which has its headquarters in Northlake, Il. Perry’s company caters to several Fortune 100 companies and has over $200 million in annual sales. Custom Companies, Inc. offers a range of services including logistics, custom bonded warehousing and distribution centers. It is also heavily involved in many charitable organizations and causes.

 

Perry Mandera may be an exceptional leader and businessman, but he is also an even more exceptional role model and philanthropist. Perry works with many charitable organizations such as the Walter and Connie Payton Foundation and the Jesse White Tumblers. Perry is known for his support of the local community as he was awarded the Citizen of the Year award in 2011 by the Illinois State Crime Commission (ISCC). The ISCC is a nonprofit organization that promotes and establishes peaceful, friendly and positive relationships between members of the public and Chicago’s local law enforcement agencies. The organization provides training, seminars, security and managerial services to local authorities and communities in Chicago. These include no-fee seminars for the general public and law enforcement officials. The seminars are used to educate and create an understanding of the importance of a symbiotic relationship between law enforcement and those they serve to protect. Perry Mandera has always focused his charitable efforts on organizations that help the youth and veterans. The ISCC helps both, as many veterans turn to law enforcement after their service in the military. And it is the youth that needs the most help and education when it comes to a relationship with police officers.

 

Custom Companies and Perry Mandera’s charitable donations and efforts don’t stop there in 2005; Perry provided 40 trucks for the transportation of food and donations to Louisiana and Mississippi for relief to those affected by Hurricane Katrina.
