In his own words, Glenn Kleiman shared a bit of his background. Come to the event to learn more!
"I was born and raised in Miami Beach, Florida.
Since seventh grade, I wanted to be a journalist. I was editor of my high school newspaper and, after school, wrote for the daily community paper (fittingly, the 'Miami Beach Sun').
I majored in journalism at Northwestern University and spent the first 11 years of my career in TV news -- the first eight as an on-air report, the final three in management. I won four Emmy awards and a Peabody.
I left TV news to start my own business. It started as a video production company -- making marketing and training videos for businesses. As technology changed, we morphed into what is now known as a digital marketing agency. We peaked at 92 employees. I sold the business in 2012.
I then started teaching part-time at Marquette University's communications school and consulting companies and nonprofits on digital content. One client: Radio Milwaukee. After a year and half with 88Nine, our executive director retired and I was hired as E.D.
I'm married to my high school sweetheart. We went to the prom together and embarassingly display the prom photo in our home. (Real life '70s Show.')
We have two grown daughters, Marley and Alison and two granddogs, Sonny and Fizz.
Oh ... and in second grade, I was Mr. Posture."
