SCORE Elects Former Chapter President And District Director Gerard Glenn As Board Chair

WASHINGTON, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SCORE, – - mentors to America's small businesses, is proud to announce the election of Gerard (Jerry) Glenn of Lancaster, PA, as its new Board Chair. Hal Shelton, SCORE mentor in Washington DC and former Board Treasurer, has also been elected as Vice Chair. Both Glenn and Shelton are current board members. Glenn's decades of business experience, including his position as president and CEO of Armstrong DLW, AG, and principal of G Squared Consulting, have made him an extremely valuable asset to SCORE as a volunteer mentor, Chapter President, District Director, Board Vice Chair, and now; Chairman of the Board. This announcement comes shortly after the resignation of Dedra Johanneson who stepped down in light of family health issues requiring her undivided attention. SCORE is grateful for the contributions Ms. Johanneson has made to the organization.


"I am privileged to have an opportunity to serve our 135,000+ clients annually as well as the 12.000+ SCORE volunteers across the country who give tirelessly to help entrepreneurs start small businesses or to grow existing businesses; and to assist SCORE's staff to successfully implement our strategic plan," commented Glenn.

"Having Jerry Glenn as our Chairman of the Board and Hal Shelton as Vice Chair puts SCORE in a position for success in 2013 and beyond," said SCORE CEO Ken Yancey. "Their years of business and leadership experience, as well as their wisdom as successful SCORE mentors, will certainly be called upon time and time again as we design and implement SCORE initiatives to help create 1 million successful small businesses by 2017."

Under Glenn's leadership, Lancaster SCORE was honored as Chapter of the Year in 2010 for the PA/DE District, and was selected to help develop new processes for SCORE's 340+ chapters across the country. During his term as Chapter President, Glenn's team initiated several new programs, processes and services including, free business roundtables for existing small businesses, a micro-loan program with the City of Lancaster for entrepreneurs in the city, expansion of business education programs to 55 annual workshops with 1,000 participants, email marketing of SCORE services, and much more.
