Brent Gleeson Biography

Brent Gleeson is a Navy SEAL combat veteran, award-winning entrepreneur, best-selling author, and acclaimed speaker on topics ranging from leadership and building high-performance teams to culture, resilience, and organizational transformation. Upon leaving SEAL Team 5, Gleeson turned his discipline and battlefield lessons to the world of business and has become an accomplished entrepreneur, author, and acclaimed speaker.

Gleeson is the Founder and CEO of TakingPoint Leadership, a progressive leadership and management consulting firm with a focus on business transformation and building high-performance cultures. With degrees in finance and economics from Southern Methodist University, certificates in English and History from Oxford University in England, and a graduate business degree from the University of San Diego, Gleeson’s extensive experience is both academic and real-world in nature. Gleeson has won awards for business leadership and was named one of the “Top 10 CEOs” in Entrepreneur Magazine’s October 2013 issue for his exemplary approach to building high-performance teams in business.

He is the bestselling author of "TakingPoint: A Navy SEAL’s 10 Fail Safe Principles for Leading Through Change," which was a #1 New Release on Amazon in Organizational Change and Business Structural Adjustment. Between his experiences in the SEAL Teams and building award-winning organizations that have topped the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing companies, Gleeson has become a business transformation expert. TakingPoint highlights his ten-principle program, which all leaders and managers will need to lead change and achieve winning results in the twenty-first-century business landscape.

He has also starred in several reality shows, including NBC’s "Stars Earn Stripes," where he and Chris Kyle of American Sniper, along with other special operations professionals, competed with celebrities to raise money for charities like Wounded Warrior Project.

Brent is on the executive board of the SEAL Family Foundation, and his family is an Ambassador Family for March of Dimes. He is married and has three wonderful children.
