Kenneth J. Glueck '89

Outstanding Alum: Exceptional Professional Success

Kenneth J. Glueck is a well-known name in the tech space. He has spent more than two decades with software giant Oracle, where he currently serves as executive vice president in the office of the CEO. As noted in Vox, Glueck “built a career as a tech lobbyist before there was a phrase for it.”  

Before Glueck’s storied career with Oracle, he was the vice president of tax and finance with the American Electronics Association from 1994 to 96. He started his career working as a field director for the first U.S. Senate campaign of Joe Lieberman, after an internship he held with Attorney General Lieberman while at UHart. After Lieberman’s win in an upset campaign for the U.S. Senate, Glueck became the Senator’s driver and then later, his technology advisor in Washington.

A recent Wall Street Journal article described Glueck as “a major force behind the increased government scrutiny of leading technology companies.” And a Bloomberg article said, “Oracle punches way above its weight in Washington.”

Glueck earned a bachelor’s degree in politics and government from the University’s College of Arts and Sciences in 1989. As a student, he was an active member of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity, where he served as the fraternity’s president in 1987. He was also a contributing staff member of the Informer and served on the Student Government Association (SGA). Glueck is happily married to his wife of 30 years, Leanne, whom he met at UHart. Leanne holds an associate degree from Hillyer College and, like Glueck, also has a bachelor’s in politics and government from the College of Arts and Sciences, and served as president of the SGA from 1987 to 88.
