BRYAN GLAZER

CO-CHAIRMAN

Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer enters his 20th year with the Buccaneers, working tirelessly to support the Buccaneers franchise and brand. Possessing an acute business sense, Glazer, who oversees many of the day-to-day operations of the club, has shaped the Buccaneers into one of the most recognizable and successful franchises in the National Football League and has become a leader in the Bay Area, recognized for his tremendous community work.

Since Glazer assumed his current role with the club, the Buccaneers have posted 146 regular season wins and five playoff wins with seven playoff appearances. That unprecedented level of success paints a stark contrast to the meager .300 winning percentage posted by the team prior to its purchase by the Glazer family, which included advancement to the postseason just three times from 1976-94.

Glazer and his entire family were on hand as Tampa Bay claimed its first NFL title with a 48-21 victory over Oakland in Super Bowl XXXVII on January 26, 2003, in San Diego. The Buccaneers, who were making their first appearance in the NFL’s championship game, also claimed the first-ever NFC South title in 2002, then the fourth division crown in team history. Tampa Bay also took NFC South titles in 2005 and 2007.

An instrumental figure in his family’s purchase of the Buccaneers in 1995, Glazer has been a driving force in improving every aspect of the club’s influence, both nationally and in the Tampa Bay region.

In 2014, the franchise welcomed its 10th head coach, as the Glazer family selected Lovie Smith to lead the team. It was a homecoming for Smith, whose first NFL coaching position was tutoring linebackers as a member of Tony Dungy’s Tampa Bay staff from 1996-2000, and the choice was roundly lauded in NFL circles. Smith brings stability and a wealth of experience to the Buccaneers, taking the reins following nine years (2004-12) as head coach of the Chicago Bears. During his tenure, Smith led the Bears to three division titles, two NFC Championship Game appearances and a berth in Super Bowl XLI, as well as being name AP and PFW/PFWA Coach of the Year in 2005. Securing Smith for the Buccaneers highlighted the Glazer family’s enduring commitment to bringing excellence to the Bay Area.

Glazer’s dedication to the Bay Area is also highlighted in the club’s effort constructing Raymond James Stadium, which successfully hosted Super Bowl XXXV in January 2001 and played host to Super Bowl XLIII in 2009. Glazer played an integral role in helping to lure the 2009 game to the Bay Area, speaking to NFL owners on behalf of the team and the Tampa Bay community at the NFL League meetings in May 2005. Glazer is committed to continuing to bring future Super Bowls to the area.

Glazer worked alongside stadium architects and contractors during the construction of Raymond James Stadium to produce his vision of what the premier stadium in the NFL should resemble. Glazer oversaw all phases of the construction of Raymond James Stadium, where the Buccaneers have notched an impressive 72-54 record in the regular season.

Glazer also worked diligently on the construction of One Buccaneer Place, the team’s training facility and business operations center. The 136,320 square-foot state-of-the-art headquarters, located mere blocks from Raymond James Stadium, is one of the finest in the National Football League. The signature feature of the facility is its breathtaking entrance, which includes the world’s largest football, towering nearly five stories tall. The facility opened to rave reviews in August of 2006.

Glazer’s innovative approach to business and penchant for thinking outside the box has resulted in many new developments for the club, including the creation of the Pewter Partners program, which rewards the Buccaneers’ sponsors with superior advertising packages and unprecedented customer service.

The Buccaneers’ new logo, color scheme and uniforms, which debuted in March 2014, were also a result of the Glazer family’s forward thinking. Glazer, along with his brothers and designers and graphic artists from Nike and NFL Properties, spent over two years crafting the enhancements. The updated logo – which features an enlarged flag and more menacing skull design – honors the Buccaneers’ rich tradition while boldly bringing the team into the future through a modern industrial aesthetic. Along with hand-painted shading and chrome facemasks on the helmet, the new uniform features a bold look with custom name and number fonts. The team’s colors were also energized with a richer shade of pewter juxtaposed with a brighter, more vibrant shade of red, as well as more prominently featuring “Bay Orange” as a primary trim and accent color.

In addition to his business achievements, Glazer also has been involved in a number of vital football-related efforts directly related to the on-the-field success experienced by the Buccaneers, certainly including, but not limited to, the team’s first Super Bowl championship.

A native of Rochester, New York, the 48-year-old Glazer serves on the NFL’s Digital Media Committee, as appointed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and he makes regular community and charitable appearances on behalf of the Glazer Family Foundation, which was honored as Foundation of the Year at the inaugural Tampa Bay Sports Commission Sneaker Soiree in 2011. The Foundation donated $5 million toward the construction of a children’s museum in downtown Tampa, which opened on September 25, 2010 and is named the Glazer Children’s Museum. In addition to serving on the Board of Directors of the Glazer Children’s Museum, Glazer is also on the Board of Directors Advisory Council for Ronald McDonald House. In spring of 2011, he served as Chairman of the American Heart Association’s annual Heart Ball charity event.

Glazer also serves on the Board of Manchester United, which has captured five Premier League titles (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013), as well as the 2008 Champions League title, during the family’s ownership.

Glazer earned his bachelor’s degree in broadcast communications from American University in 1986, prior to completing his law degree from Whittier College School of Law in 1989.
