Speaker Bio
Brandon Glover is the Strategic Initiatives manager of Charitable Giving for Alabama Power, where he works with a team to align philanthropic efforts with the company’s mission of transforming Alabama’s economy and greatly improving the quality of life of its citizens.

Glover developed the Strategic Initiatives team based on the idea that philanthropic outcomes and economic growth are not mutually exclusive. Today, major areas of the team’s focus include fostering an impact investment ecosystem in Alabama, supporting state-level workforce efforts, developing collaborative-impact strategies among statewide partners, and connecting national thought leaders and resources to the state.

Glover joined Alabama Power in 2008 as a communication specialist for the company’s Eastern Division Anniston office. In 2011, he moved to Birmingham to provide communication support for the company’s Corporate Real Estate, Environmental Affairs and Generation teams. Glover has supported executive-level initiatives as assistant to both Zeke Smith, executive vice president of External Affairs, and John O. Hudson III in his former role as vice president of Public Relations and Charitable Giving. Prior to joining Alabama Power, Glover was a member of the newsroom at the Demopolis Times.

Glover received his bachelor’s degree in Communications and Information Sciences from the University of Alabama in 2006 and a Master of Business Administration with a focus in Finance from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2012. He received a professional certificate from the Institute for Corporate Responsibility through Johns Hopkins University Advanced Academic Programs in 2018.

Glover is a member of Jones Valley Teaching Farm board of directors and the Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama’s Roundtable. He previously co-chaired the career pathways committee of the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council and has served on the boards of directors for the Freshwater Land Trust, the Alabama Wildlife Center and Rotaract Birmingham. Glover is proud to have helped found both the Young Leaders Society of Calhoun County and the GETT Moving East Alabama’s get-out-the-vote effort.

Glover is a native of Oneonta, Alabama. He and his partner, Rachel Puckett, reside in Birmingham’s Avondale neighborhood.
