Family Information

I have been married to my wife, Kristin Glass, for 4 years. We have two dogs and a son born this past April. My wife works as the Vice President of Investor Relations for the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce so the both of us are out within the community quite frequently. Kristin and I both enjoy golfing and being with our friends and family.

Employment Information

I have spent a majority of my career in sales and management. I obtained my BA in Business from Western Illinois University with a focus in management and I hope to someday utilize that college degree and run a business. Currently I am the Director of Client Services and Marketing for Terrostar Technology Solutions in Bettendorf, IA. I work with our clients brainstorming and planning out their internet marketing and social media projects. I enjoy having the ability to get to know new people daily and love the opportunity to travel from time to time.

My Rotary Story

I first came to visit the Bettendorf Rotary in January of 2011 by invitation of Scott Naumann. In my very first meeting I was very pleased to see how friendly everyone was to a non-member, and I really enjoyed how they joked, laughed, and had a good time. When I began to learn more about what Rotary does I knew at that point this was an organization for me. Scott has played a big role in my development as a Rotarian and I am happy to have joined the best Rotary club in the Quad Cities.

My Rotary Involvement

 When I first joined Rotary I had very little idea of the journey I was about to embark on. From the first couple months of my membership I began volunteering for projects and anything I could get my hands on. Every time I volunteered for something I had a feeling of accomplishment in knowing I was doing something good for the community. It was not until I did the Dictionary project that I truly realized the impact that we as Rotarians have on these children’s lives. Something as simple as giving a child their very own dictionary puts a smile on their face like you would not believe. From here I knew I wanted to be even more involved. I sign up for every volunteer opportunity I can get my hands on. I have joined the Marketing committee, started the Events committee, and was a part of the merging of those two committees in the summer of 2012. I also took on the Run with Carl becoming the Volunteer Chair for the 2012 race year and coordinating all of the volunteers for the race. This has proven to be a large and difficult task, but it has been a lot of fun. I am very excited in the direction our new super committee is taking and I am excited to see what is to come for the Bettendorf Rotary.

I am proud to be a Rotarian, especially a Bettendorf Rotarian!
