The Tuesday Conversation

Valerie Glenn – 10/25/16

The Glenn Group is a 28-year-old advertising and public relations firm with offices in Las Vegas and Reno. The company, through its then-DRGM Advertising arm, was involved in the marketing of such newly opened Strip giants as MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay. The company’s clients also have included businesses in health care, financial services, home building, insurance and retail.

Valerie Glenn, the company’s chief executive officer, described her business approach in an interview with the Las Vegas Sun: “We take a lot of time to really understand (the) consumer because we always want to make sure we are representing the consumer’s point of view. I really believe that it’s not so much about what someone is trying to sell. It has everything to do with what somebody wants to buy, and if you are selling something that nobody wants to buy then everybody is in trouble.”
