Professional Biography — Believe, Conceive, Achieve
Glenn Llopis' career is characterized by a consistent ability to conceive and believe-in a compelling vision with the passion to achieve the impossible. His success story is an anthology of resilience, endurance and accrued wisdom. His expertise in new venture and strategic alliance is a product of great mentors and hands-on experience as a corporate officer, consultant and entrepreneurial brand owner. In Glenn, charm, grit and tenacity merge into one person who demonstrates loyalty and honor in every engagement. Glenn is a new school entrepreneur who regards character, innovation and social responsibility as among the most essential components to success.
Glenn has a gift for promoting the best in people. He consistently achieves the impossible and has delivered profitable long term results - well beyond his years. His experiences include tenure as the youngest Senior Manager in the 100+year history of Sunkist, Vice President of a $1 Billion International Norway Seafood Company at 30, and dozens of successful entrepreneurial ventures over the last 10 years, each time exceeding expectations.
Through his vast experience, Glenn has gained multi-industry knowledge for large, medium and smaller corporations. According to Llopis, "As a successful business leader, you are constantly faced with vigorous competition. A good competitor respects your efforts, and will look to steal from your success; challenging you to stay sharp and creative. Unhealthy competitors have hidden agendas; they seek to hurt your reputation or destroy your credibility. Therefore, you must always find the time to protect any new venture, regardless of the size, with a powerful credibility protection plan. If a venture isn't worth aggressively protecting, why are you doing it in the first place?" It is this sort of insight that Mr. Llopis acquired when spearheading: 1) the North American reintroduction of Sunkist's branded fruit juices & beverage; 2) the successful & profitable corporate merger and integration endeavor at Norway Seafoods and; 3) the design of trademark licensing and distribution ventures for ConAgra Foods, Conservas San Miguel, Pied-Mont Dora Inc., E.D. Smith Inc. and Savory Sensations, LLC.
Glenn is a charismatic, action-oriented and approachable leader. His Cuban roots give him an enthusiasm and passion to use his breadth and depth of experience to keep corporations and entrepreneurs from getting lost in the today's demanding market. Mr. Llopis' entrepreneurial approach to business and life derives from the transcendent wisdom of his father, Cuban immigrant and renowned Latin crossover musician Frank Llopis, who following a successful music career, went on to become one of the co-creators of Miller Lite. Glenn combines this holistic entrepreneurial approach with the "classical corporate training roots" from his fast-tracked years at the Gallo Wine Company. He is thus skilled at integrating these entrepreneurial and corporate disciplines to help cross-cultural management teams identify new world demand drivers, then establish action plans to secure long-term and profitable results.
Glenn is a dynamic leader with proven skills in new venture formations throughout three continents with special emphasis in the United States, Mexico, Canada and Western European markets. Mr. Llopis offers excellent consensus building, organizational and negotiating skills. He specializes in managing high level client relationships and leading new venture and equity development programs. He is flexible, innovative, decisive and action-driven.
