I look forward to giving back and supporting them as we continue to expand the business.”
Mr. Glascott joined AVI in March 2020 as a Senior Advisor. He most recently served as the Chairman of Capital Markets at Barclays. In addition, Jim spent 14 years at Morgan Stanley and served as the Managing Director of Capital Markets prior to joining Barclays.
