Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP Attorney Glenn T. Singleton has been chosen by the Dallas Regional Chamber to join the 39th Leadership Dallas class. Leadership Dallas, the region's premier leadership development program, aims to provide the city with an ongoing source of diverse leaders who are committed to serve as catalysts and sustainers of positive change for the culture, commerce and quality of life in North Texas.
"Glenn continues a long tradition of Gardere attorneys serving on Leadership Dallas," says Gardere Chair Holland N. O'Neil. "His participation fosters the corporate-community partnership that is mutually important to both the city and businesses such as Gardere that reside downtown and contribute to the city's growth and vibrancy."
The 10-month educational program is designed to empower participants to develop their leadership capabilities while building strong relationships with fellow classmates and community leaders. Since its formation in 1975, Leadership Dallas has graduated more than 1,800 men and women who continue in business and community leadership throughout North Texas.
"I am honored to be included in this year's class, and I look forward to meeting other community leaders as we work to positively impact North Texas," Mr. Singleton says. "Although I'm not a Texas native, Dallas has become my adopted home, and I am excited about its potential."
Actively involved in the Dallas community, Mr. Singleton is co-chair of Klyde Warren Park Friends of the Park and a volunteer for the Dallas-Area Habitat for Humanity. He is also the founder of Young Professionals in Private Equity, a Dallas-area networking group geared toward private equity professionals.
