Glenn Dady: Chief Executive Officer
Glenn joined The Richards Group in 1980 after graduating at the top of his class from ArtCenter College of Design. Advertising Age soon named him one of the “100 Best and Brightest Young People in Advertising.” Adweek selected him for their Creative All-Star Team four times. His art direction and design have been honored repeatedly throughout his career by The Art Directors Club, The One Show, Communication Arts, Lürzer’s Archive, the Clios, and Cannes.
Quite simply, Glenn is a true master of his craft. He’s a gifted creative thinker – particular, inventive, original – and an intuitive problem-solver. But what makes Glenn truly unlike any other is his innate ability to inspire and lead.
In October 2020, Glenn was named CEO of The Richards Group. Which means that in addition to already being an icon, a craftsman, and a mentor, he’s now responsible for managing all the day-to-day operations of one of the largest and most storied independent agencies in America. His mission? To continue motivating the agency through his focus on – and passion for – our people and our work.
A native of Colorado, Glenn sneaks in a couple of trips a year to the mountains with his wife, sons, and their families. He also boasts the agency’s largest collection of water guns.
