Glenn Tecker

As founder of Tecker International, Glenn is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s foremost experts on association leadership and strategy. He assists organizations in identifying the right strategy to address their challenges of today – and tomorrow. But strategy isn’t enough. Glenn works with clients to ensure governance, operations and culture are aligned to support strategy. He identifies trends and encourages associations to experiment and innovate.

Glenn’s clients include corporations, public agencies and trade, professional, and philanthropic associations around the world. You may have seen him lead the ASAE’s CEO Symposium or our very own Critical Issues in Veterinary Association Leadership workshops offered at the 2020 and 2022 Veterinary Leadership Conference. He has won many awards and is a prolific author of books, articles, blogs, handbooks, and videos that are substantive contributions to the literature of association management.

It’s hard to imagine there’s an organizational challenge Glenn hasn’t seen or helped to solve – but new ones are always welcome. That’s why he has been called Executive Ally, Horse Whisperer, Experimenter, Innovator, Fun Facilitator, and Disrupter – all terms he has embraced.
