EDWARD GLAZER

CO-CHAIRMAN
& GLAZER FAMILY FOUNDATION, CO-PRESIDENT

Entering his 22nd season with Tampa Bay in 2016, Co-Chairman Edward Glazer oversees many aspects of the team’s day-to-day business operations.

Recognizing that the fans are of the utmost importance to the team’s success, Glazer sets the tone for Tampa Bay’s commitment to its fan base. In recent years, Glazer has overseen a complete overhaul of the team’s marketing and sales departments, including the launch of a new Member Relations Department created exclusively for Buccaneers Season Pass Members.  The department, which offers an array of off-the-field benefits and unparalleled customer service, has been a huge success as JD Powers ranked the Buccaneers No. 1 in customer satisfaction among all NFL teams for three out of the past four seasons.

Glazer scrutinizes every detail of the business operations at One Buccaneer Place to ensure that fans are getting the best possible Buccaneers experience and value. In an effort to make season pass membership even more accessible to fans, Glazer introduced the NFL’s first 12-month interest-free payment plan.  

With a focus on continually improving the gameday experience for Buccaneers fans, Glazer was instrumental in the renovation of Raymond James Stadium. The renovation is expected to exceed $140 million and will be completed in two phases. The first stage will be completed for the Buccaneers’ 2016 season and is highlighted by the installation of new, state-of-the-art HD video boards in each end zone, all new ribbon boards and four HD tower video displays in each corner of the lower bowl. Starting this season, Raymond James Stadium’s nearly 29,000 square feet of video display space will rank third largest among NFL venues. Also included will be the new surround sound system, a complete renovation of all luxury suites and the introduction of the exclusive all new, all-inclusive Hall of Fame Club.

Glazer worked closely with Nike and the NFL to create a bold, new look for the team’s new uniforms that were unveiled prior to the 2014 season. The enhanced 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. The new uniform features a bold look with custom name and number fonts as well as the first chrome facemasks on an NFL helmet. The team also energized its color scheme 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.

The Glazer family has been devoted to building a winning team from their earliest days as owners. Under the Glazers, Tampa Bay has enjoyed its most successful stretch as a franchise, posting seven playoff appearances with four division championships in addition to a world championship in Super Bowl XXXVII, a 48-21 victory over the Oakland Raiders in San Diego on January 26, 2003.

With another Super Bowl victory as the ultimate goal, the Glazers have made bold, educated moves to assemble a winning franchise. In 2014, Glazer and his siblings hired General Manager Jason Licht and in 2016 they promoted offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter to head coach. The Buccaneers have drafted key pieces of the future while extending contracts for homegrown talent and securing important free agents. In 2015, the team’s draft produced an astonishing four rookies who made immediate impacts as starters: quarterback Jameis Winston, offensive linemen Donovan Smith and Ali Marpet, and linebacker Kwon Alexander. The team has also extended contracts for defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (2014), linebacker Lavonte David (2015) and running back Doug Martin (2016), ensuring that the vital core of the team’s foundation for future success stays intact.

In 2009, the Glazer family was honored with the prestigious Gonzmart Family Ambassador of the Year Award, as part of the 26th annual National Tourism Week, presented by Tampa Bay & Company. The Ambassador Award was presented to the Glazers in recognition of their efforts to help the tourism industry in the Bay Area, as well as their impact on the community overall.

In 2010, The Glazer Children’s Museum opened in downtown Tampa to rave reviews, earning recognition by Women’s Day Magazine as one of the Top 10 family museums in the country. For its wide-reaching efforts, the Tampa Bay Sports Commission named the Glazer Family Foundation the Foundation of the Year at the inaugural Sneaker Soiree in 2011.

Away from the football field, Glazer is also heavily involved in charitable endeavors. He is Co-President of the Glazer Family Foundation and helps oversee Foundation programs that provide incredible opportunities to Bay Area residents. The Foundation has donated millions in programs, tickets, grants and in-kind contributions.

Glazer and his wife, Shari, are committed to providing aid and assistance in the community, supporting many causes, including the Zimmer Children’s Museum, Cedars-Sinai Hospital, and the UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital where the Ed and Shari Glazer unveiled the “B.F.F Bear Program” which gives free teddy bears to pediatric patients.

In addition to his duties with the Buccaneers, Glazer serves on the board of the family-owned Manchester United Soccer Club – the world’s most popular team with over 660 million fans worldwide. Under the Glazers’ ownership, the club has won the Premier League title in five of the last 10 seasons and has also played in three Champions League final matches, winning the 2008 Champions League title.  In 2016, Manchester United took home the FA Cup.  Glazer is also Co-Chairman of First Allied Corporation and Owner and C.E.O. of US Property Trust.

A proud Ithaca College alumnus, Glazer recently opened the Edward and Shari Glazer Arena on the school’s campus. Glazer and his wife Shari have three daughters.
