Serial entrepreneur. Philanthropist. Advocate. Family man. Global citizen.
Glenn Williamson grew up in Montreal, Canada and spent his high school years at Rothsey Collegiate Military Academy on Canada’s east coast in New Brunswick. In every way possible, Williamson is a self-made man and doesn’t hesitate to say that he just did what needed to be done. Today, as CEO of Nest Ventures, LLC, he works to access Canadian capital markets for global investments; as founder and CEO of Canada Arizona Business Council, he works to increase bilateral trade and foreign direct investments between Arizona and Canada; and as the Honorary Consul of Canada for Arizona, Williamson frequently dons a referee badge where he gets to “help people understand each other.” In April, Williams became the first recipient of the City of Phoenix Global Citizens Award.
