Stefan Gleason is president of Money Metals Exchange, the national precious metals investment company and news service recently named "Dealer of the Year" in the United States by an industry ratings group. Money Metals has over 450,000 readers, 35,000 paid customers, and $120 million in annual sales.
Gleason founded the company in 2010 while president of a national newsletter publishing company and in direct response to the abusive methods of advertisers of “rare,” collectible, and numismatic coins who mark up their coins to 50%, 100%, or even higher above their actual melt value. Money Metals believes the average investor should never buy precious metals that are not priced at or near their actual melt value.
Previously, Gleason served as Vice President of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation in Springfield, Virginia. As the first strategic litigation organization in the individual rights and free enterprise movement, the Foundation has led the national legal battle to block the expansion of union special privileges over workers and the U.S. economy since 1968. In addition to managing fundraising programs and many of the internal dynamics of the Foundation's $7 million-a-year operation, he was the Foundation's primary spokesman on a number of critical, high-profile legal cases, some of which were heard by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Gleason has frequently appeared on national television shows and networks such as Fox News Channel's O'Reilly Factor and Special Report with Brit Hume, CNBC's Closing Bell, Christian Broadcasting Network, CNN, and C-SPAN's Washington Journal. He has frequently been interviewed on national radio shows such as the Lars Larson Show, Jerry Doyle Show, Michael Reagan Show, G. Gordon Liddy Show, and Ken Hamblin Show.
Gleason's articles and expert comments have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Detroit News, Washington Times, and National Review, among thousands of other national, state, and local newspapers, wire services, and Internet sites.
A seasoned business leader, investor, political strategist, and grassroots activist, Gleason is also a graduate of the University of Florida with a BA degree in Political Science.
