Being a Canadian by birth, Mike served and retired from the
Royal Canadian Air Force and has resided in the United States
for the past 45 years. Armed with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering
and an M.B.A. from the Wharton School of Business, he embarked
on a 35-year career with Ford Motor Company where, among other
things, he was involved in business planning for the electronics devision of Ford which resulted
in sales growth from $250 million to $3.5 billion
per year, and the construction of ten plants in six years
around the world. Mike retired from Ford in 1995 and now not only serves on our Board, but
tracks the progress of his grandchildren who reside in Dayton,
Ohio and Washington, D.C. We are honored and privileged to
have him serve on the Board of Directors at VHA.
After graduating from the University of Kentucky in 1960,
Glenn embarked upon a career as a professional football player.
During his time with the National Football League, he played
for the Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, Los Angeles Rams
and Oakland Raiders, where he held the position of Running
Back. Thereafter, he began a new career in Human Resources
which spanned 35 years working for several major corporations
including Litton Industries, Dresser Industries, Hygrade Food
Products, Indersco and Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical. He is
now retired and is a great and valued asset to our Board of
Directors. We thank him for his service to Van Hoose.
