Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer
The twenty-five years Glenn Prager has dedicated to combating fraud, waste and abuse in both the public and private sectors have honed his skills and sharpened his focus, but they’ve never dampened his spirit. On the contrary, this solution-driven leader has made it his mission to bring innovation and integrity to the fight against fraud, never resting on yesterday’s successes, and always finding the opportunity that lies within the challenge. For Glenn, impossible is just a frame of mind.
This never say never spirit has served him well throughout his career, producing highly successful tenures in such agencies as the DOJ, OIG and CMS, and leading to his appointment as Arizona’s Inspector General at the improbable age of 36, garnering him the title of the country’s youngest IG.
As CoventBridge Group’s Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer, Glenn continues to build upon his life’s work, bringing to fruition an ‘impossible’ opportunity he envisioned nearly a decade ago: forming strong and strategic partnerships to address spiraling public sector fraud with solid private sector solutions. Today, thanks to Glenn’s foresight and resolve, this once small seed of an idea has taken root and, along with CoventBridge Group, has grown into a formidable force in the fraud abatement industry.
