By September 23, 2016 Quantum in the News

New York, NY – GRA Quantum President Tom Boyden is pleased to announce that the company will be expanding operations into Canada under the leadership of our newest Managing Director, Glenn Cowan.

The move is part of a larger effort to further GRA Quantum’s strategic growth and foster relationships in new areas. Canada represents an exciting opportunity that native son Glenn is well-positioned to embrace as he assumes business development and management responsibilities for this new venture.

Glenn is an accomplished 18-year veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces. For 12 of those years he served as a Senior Officer and Squadron Commander within the Canadian Special Operations Forces Command, where he regularly completed missions directly affecting Canada’s national interests. As an experienced leader, he understands the requirements for timely and precise responses to rapidly evolving challenges.

“Thinking creatively and fusing information, products and services into task-tailored and bespoke cybersecurity strategies is at the heart of the GRA Quantum value proposition,” offered Glenn. “I’m excited to introduce that philosophy and our capabilities to Canada.”

GRA Quantum President Tom Boyden remarked, “It’s more than fitting that we’re bringing on someone so eager and so dedicated to run our Canada expansion. Glenn is really a perfect reflection of the kind of energy and opportunity we’re looking to capture as we continue to grow in new areas and forge new partnerships.”

Glenn is a graduate of McGill University where he double-majored in International Relations and History.
