Early life and education[edit]

Glazer was born to Linda and Malcolm Glazer, American businessman and billionaire.[1][2] Glazer grew up in Rochester, NY. Glazer attended the American University in Washington, D.C., receiving a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Glazer has a wife, Angela Glazer, as well as two daughters, Dylan and Zoey Glazer.

Career[edit]

After working alongside his father Malcolm to successfully acquire the Tampa Bay Buccaneers franchise in 1995, Glazer worked in conjunction with his brother, Bryan, to build a community consensus for local approval of what would become Raymond James Stadium. Thereafter, in 2002, he helped lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the franchise first Super Bowl victory vs. the Oakland Raiders on January 26, 2003.[3]

Glazer, the franchise's Co-Chairman, represents the franchise at all league meetings since 1995 and is very active in a wide range of NFL matters. During the 2019 offseason, Glazer was appointed chairman of the International Committee by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. He also continues his responsibilities on the league's Finance, Media, and Legalized Sports Betting committees.[4]

Glazer also serves as Co-Chairman of Manchester United Football Club, which has captured five Premier League titles (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013), one Champions League title (2008), four League Cups (2006, 2009, 2010, 2017), one FA Cup (2016), and one Europa League Championship (2017) during his tenure. His work with the club led to his naming as one of the Top 10 most influential Americans in the United Kingdom by The Telegraph.[5]

Glazer has been very active in the Tampa Bay community through the Glazer Family Foundation, which is dedicated to helping children in the Tampa Bay area through charity initiatives. The Foundation donated $5 million toward the construction of the Glazer Children's Museum, in downtown Tampa, which opened in 2010 and was named one of the Top Ten Family Museums in the country by Women's Day Magazine. For its wide-reaching charitable efforts, the Tampa Bay Sports Commission named the Glazer Family Foundation the Foundation of the Year at the inaugural Sneaker Soiree held in 2011.[6]
