Linkedin Profile 
Glenn is a native of New York City and has been involved in the horticulture industry for over 45 years.  From a small retail store in New Haven, over the next 20 years Glenn built the business into a regional success, a high volume chain of retail stores and wholesale foliage distribution centers, including a lawn and garden import division.  Glenn owned and operated garden centers from New York City to Philadelphia, foliage nurseries in Florida, orchid nurseries in Thailand and tree farms and nurseries in Vietnam.   After selling his U.S. based business interests to devote more time to his Asian ventures, Glenn relocated to Bangkok, Thailand in 1994.  Glenn has acted as a grower, broker and exporter of young plants and orchids and has introduced new ornamental plant varieties from Asia to growers worldwide.  In addition to years of senior level day to day business management and operations, his experience further extends to designing and constructing thousands of square feet of nurseries and greenhouses.
During his time in Asia, in addition to his horticulture business, he has been involved in other ventures including an internet start-up which he founded and then sold to a Singapore investment group (www.theglobalgrocer.com) and the production of postage stamps for the Lao government (SEA Philatelic Group, Inc).  He has also served as a Special Advisor to H.E. Sar Sambath, former Cambodian Ambassador to the United Nations.  In 2011 he left his position as Landscape Project Manager for the $4.5 billion Ho Tram Strip project, consisting of 5 five star resorts and two Las Vegas style casinos in Vung Tau, Vietnam, to return to the United States to devote his full time and energy as co-founder and President of GreenTech Agro LLC.  Glenn and his wife currently reside in Dallas where he manages the day to day operations of GreenTech Agro LLC and CEA Advisors LLC. Based at Texas A & M University Agrilife Research Center, Glenn works full time on the design, development and fabrication of the Growtainer™ containers, Growrack™ rack systems, Growtroller™ control systems and provides Consulting services to international clients on the development of innovative investment grade indoor farming projects
