When Thomas L. Glenn Sr. established Glenn Insurance, he envisioned a prosperous future for Atlantic County. From the very beginning, the company was built on a devotion to family and community.
“My ancestors have lived in Atlantic County for over 200 years, moving to Atlantic City well over 100 years ago. My great-grandfather Lewis B. Glenn loved Atlantic City and made it his aim to give back wherever he could,” said Tim Glenn, president of Glenn Insurance. “He was director of the Atlantic City National Bank and president of the Atlantic City Board of Education. It was his example that set the standard for what the company is today — always looking for a way to support local aid groups and organizations that impact the welfare of the community.”
Glenn Insurance has its roots in Phillips Company, founded by one of Tim Glenn’s ancestors, Walter W. Clark, in 1879. Thomas L. Glenn Sr. started Glenn Insurance in 1927 after graduating from Colgate University. His father, Lewis Glenn, joined him during the Great Depression, bringing his license and entire book of business with him.
Through the years, Glenn Insurance has stayed a close-knit family business, with the presidency passed to Tim’s father, Thomas L. Glenn Jr., in 1966 and then Tim’s uncle, R. Ronald Glenn, in 1984. In 2001, Tim took the reins as president, carrying on the family tradition of hard work, customer loyalty and consistent support for the community through financial sponsorship of worthy organizations. Today, as a Trusted Choice Independent Insurance Agency, Glenn Insurance is the area’s leading insurance agency offering personal, business, life and health insurance, plus customized insurance planning to cover each client’s needs.
“I learned how to run Glenn Insurance from my dad and I am very fortunate to have worked with him for 16 years,” Tim Glenn said. “He learned from his dad and grandfather, and from the ladies in our family, too. Knowing the effort he put into developing relationships and working to earn clients’ trust, it’s a great responsibility to honor his memory and conduct business the way he taught me — with integrity and respect for others.”
