The COMMIT Foundation, a leading non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and empowering veterans in defining their identity and purpose after military service, is pleased to announce the appointment of Lieutenant Colonel (Ret.) JC Glick as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.

Glick brings a wealth of experience as a leadership consultant and a deep commitment to supporting veterans in their transition journey.

In 2017, he was selected as a TEDX Speaker and delivered Rethinking Leadership at TEDX Hammond. Glick is also an adjunct professor at St. John’s University in Queens, New York.

Over the course of his Army career, Glick spent over seven years in the Ranger regiment, serving in two Ranger Battalions as well as Regimental Headquarters, participating in the Best Ranger Competition twice, and has over seven and a half years of command time with 11 operational and combat deployments to Haiti, Bangladesh, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

“I am humbled and honored to join The COMMIT Foundation and to have the opportunity to work alongside such a dedicated team. I am deeply committed to our mission of empowering veterans and our nation’s future leaders to write their next chapter. I look forward to building on the foundation of success established over the past decade,” said Glick.
