About Glen Schrank
Glen E. Schrank, CEO of Phoenix Energy Technologies, has over 30 years of leadership experience in technology-based businesses. Prior roles include Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development at HyTrust (acquired by EnTrust), a company providing Cloud Security Software; Interim CEO at Cirro, a company providing technology in the Big Data and Analytics market; CEO of Eccentex, a company that provides Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings; CEO of HireRight, a Software as a Service (SaaS) company, and 15 years at IBM in various emerging growth tech businesses.
Glen had an early fascination with how businesses thrive and grow. At 12 years old, he started observing how his parents and brothers built a small family-owned retail business into a substantial enterprise with multiple locations across the western United States. The dinner talk around the table often centered on the importance of facilities management, which became a full circle moment when he took the helm of Phoenix Energy Technologies.
Education is also one of Glen’s passions. He holds a degree in Mathematics from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) and an MBA from the University of Southern California (USC). When time permits, he teaches MBA courses in Entrepreneurship and Growth Strategies as an adjunct professor at the University of California Irvine (UCI), Paul Merage School of Business.
