GPG Founder Returns to Active Role

GPG’s founder, Glen Price, has returned in 2019 to an active role with the company. GPG President, Aaron Price, GPG Vice President, Caitlin Lawrence-Toombs, will continue to lead the company’s strategic directions and oversee day-to-day operations.  As founder, Glen will be working directly with select GPG clients and provide support to other GPG team members.

Glen launched GPG in 2002 to provide non-profit, foundation, and public sector organizations with strategic planning, organizational, and fund development services.

Since that time, GPG has gained an outstanding reputation for quality, client service, and results. Glen notes, “The key has been the passionate commitment of our team to helping our clients advance their missions. The results that this incredible group has achieved speak for themselves.”

Between 2014 and 2018, Glen took a leave of absence from GPG to serve as a Chief Deputy for California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson at the California Department of Education (CDE). At CDE, he was instrumental in the launch of California’s Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), a groundbreaking effort to build local district and school capacity for equity and improved performance. The LCFF shifted $10 billion annually to support improved services for low-income, English learner, and foster youth students.

Previously, Glen was the principal team leader for efforts that raised over $1 billion dollars for the capital and program initiatives of public and private agencies. He has provided extensive strategic planning and organizational development support for foundations, non-profit organizations, local education agencies, and governmental entities, including the Alameda County, Los Angeles Universal Preschool, Sonoma County, United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, American Red Cross, CARE, World Wildlife Fund, First 5 California, S.D. Bechtel Jr., Foundation, David and Lucile Packard Foundation, Stuart Foundation, UNITE LA, and others.

Much of Glen’s work focuses on the design, implementation, funding, and evaluation of multi-stakeholder and multi-disciplinary coalitions, alliances, and collaborative projects to increase community empowerment and equity. Key examples of these activities include support for the development of the California Labor Management Initiative, the California Comprehensive Early Learning Plan, and the California Superintendent of Public Instruction’s Accountability and Continuous Improvement Task Force.

Welcome back Glen!
