Glen J. Dalakian has spent most of his life involved in Business.  He was raised in and around a family owned Dry Cleaning Operation that served more than 30 satellite locations throughout Essex County, NJ.  After attending Seton Hall University, Glen chose to reach out on his own and start a number of businesses that served the NJ/NY/CT Tri-State area.  He developed a variety of enterprises in the Electronics, Entertainment and Retail industries, generating millions of dollars in revenues and reaching the pinnacle of success, in each field, of his niche market operations.  Starting in 1996, while operating a number of traditional businesses, Glen traveled the country teaching and speaking to audiences of as many as 10,000 on Independent Business Ownership, Marketing and People Skills.  In addition Glen has consulted on numerous business projects to provide a refreshing and innovative perspective on Marketing and Operations for many companies.  Glen currently serves as President of the Colts Neck Business Association, one of the fastest growing organizations of its kind and is a managing partner of two growing companies.

Glen grew up attending an Armenian Orthodox Church, in which his family was very involved.  After many years of study he was ordained through all levels of Church service (Acolyte thru Sub-Deacon) eventually reaching full Deacon in 1986.  Although steeped in orthodox traditions Glen did not find comfort in the Lord in the Orthodox Church and he was prompted to Christ and Born Again in 1996.   Since that time he has had a zeal for seeking God and His Word.  Glen is a student of the Bible and experienced in Church leadership with a heart for Discipleship and Church growth.  He is currently a Trustee at Colts Neck Community Church and also serves there as a Deacon.

Glen has been happily married since 1987 and he and his wife have two boys attending Universities.
