The Team

Richard D. Glaser, PhD

President, Benchmark Communications, Inc.

Founding Member, The CreatingWE Institute

Glaser has worked in the Pharmaceutical/Biotechnology Industry most of his professional career including two Fortune 500 companies where he held executive global responsibilities.  As an entrepreneur, has served as the COO and Board member of two NASDAQ companies as well as the President of the first of the major Contract Research Organizations servicing the Pharmaceutical Industry.

Glaser earned a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and a MS degree in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Kansas and an MS in Pharmaceutical Chemistry and a BS in Chemistry from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science (now The University of Sciences).

Glaser is a founding member of The CreatingWE Institute and the President of Benchmark Communications, Inc., the Institute’s sponsor, where he brings over 30 years of management experience to bear on the growth of The CreatingWE Institute and its Conversational Intelligence Initiatives.  In addition to his work with The CreatingWE Institute, he also consults with Biotechnology companies not only in management issues, but in drug development strategies, clinical drug design, and regulatory affairs.

For many years, Glaser has worked closely with a number of oncology researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center assisting in the design of their research protocols to meet the FDA’s stringent requirements for approval to market a pharmaceutical product.  Most recently Glaser has been involved in the development of a more accurate diagnostic for breast cancer.  The development of effective cancer diagnostics and drugs is a personal goal for Glaser.
