Billye Chabot - Executive Director, Seward House Museum
"We just wanted to write you a quick note thanking you for being our 2016 Elsa Soderberg Distinguished Speaker. Everyone that came to the event enjoyed your presentation. You are still the talk of the town here in Auburn. After your lecture many commented to the staff that they 'could have listed to you speak for hours' and that they 'were so interested and wanted more!' Everyone left the lecture very happy, energized, and with a few new places to visit."
Brett Egan - President, DeVos Institute for Arts Management at the University of Maryland

Daniel P. Jordan, Ph.D. - Emeritus President, Thomas Jefferson Foundation (Monticello).
“It's been incredible to have someone with Brent Glass' level of experience serving as a sounding board, providing ideas and feedback, and acting as a cheerleader. I appreciate being matched with someone who ran a humanities-based organization. It was an excellent fit.”
Edward J. Hawie - Trustee of the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force
"As Chairman of the Search Committee for a CEO for the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force, I worked hand-in-hand with Brent Glass, the Committee's Consultant. Brent made the whole process enjoyable, met what I thought was a tight time line, was always available, and brought us a wealth of candidates for the position. The Committee had a difficult time making a selection because of the quality of the candidates and Brent's guidance throughout the process was invaluable."
Kimberly Bender - Executive Director, Heurich House Museum
"I am very pleased to endorse Dr. Brent Glass and his team. The Heurich House Museum formed a relationship with Dr. Glass almost immediately after he first visited the site, and our small “start-up” museum could not have evolved into the thriving organization it is today without him. Dr. Glass’s mentorship and guidance has been key to my growth as a museum Executive Director, and has helped guide the museum through numerous complicated and challenging tasks.
Dr. Glass’s experience is incomparable. He has dedicated his career to the fields of museums and public education. Whether capably steering mammoth institutions through large transformations, like he did at the National Museum of American History, providing steady governance of cultural stewards like the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, or helping give birth to new and important sites, like the United Flight 93 Memorial, Dr. Glass has made an enormous impact on America's cultural heritage. In his current role, Dr. Glass is perhaps able to do his best work as a resource for museums and cultural institutions of all stages, sizes, and needs."
L. Charles Marcon - Chair, Board of Directors of the National Museum of Industrial History
"Brent Glass was a consultant, advisor, and job coach for the National Museum of Industrial History from April 2014 through June 2017. He advised the Museum in matters of organization, personnel, and building and exhibit design. Brent’s expertise and enthusiasm for the success of our project were invaluable."
Melanie Leigh Mathewes - Executive Director, National Sporting Library & Museum
"Long after the search was completed, Brent Glass has remained a trusted advisor, colleague, and mentor. At the time of our introduction, I had been with the same museum for many years and over those years had been approached numerous times about other positions. From the beginning of this search, Brent's communication skills put me at ease with the process. I appreciated his guidance, not only during the search but also into the first few months of my new position. Brent finds the intersection of client needs and candidate skills to make a quality connection for both."
