AVB’s William Glade Makes the Grade

AVB Marketing’s William Glade is honored by Dealerscope Magazine

Joins Dealerscope magazine’s 40 Under 40 honor roll

By Alan Wolf, YSN

Each year, business publication Dealerscope scans the retail and vendor landscape for the industry’s best and brightest young stars.

It then selects the 40 most resourceful, resilient and creative individuals, all under the age of 40, for inclusion in its vaunted 40 Under 40 series. This year, AVB Marketing’s own William Glade joins this most venerable club.

The honor should come as no surprise. In his scant three-and-a-half years at AVB, Glade was promoted to director of SEO & analytics, earned the group’s employee Award of Excellence and has been a frequent contributor to YSN. As his colleague, marketing general manager and past 40 Under 40 honoree Eric Hunter noted, “William has been a huge driver in making sure our platform and practices are best-in-class to support our members’ SEO relevance.” What’s more, Glade recently assumed the additional challenge of managing AVB Marketing’s analytics and business intelligence efforts, which continue to grow.

For his part, Glade wrote in a LinkedIn post that he and his AVB Marketing team worked very hard to make BrandSource members successful in a competitive market, and that he’s honored to be a part of Dealerscope’s 40 Under 40 class of 2022. “To have that hard work recognized feels really great,” he posted.

Glade is but the latest AVB staffer to join the 40 Under 40 ranks. Besides Hunter, past honorees include merchandising chief Chad Evans, special events doyenne Jennifer Baldwin, LINQ lead Laura Dake, client services GM Grant Hancock, home furnishings GM Michael Posa and YSN’s own Danielle Diaz.

Congratulations William, well done!
