Scott Glenn Named Vice President of Asset Protection at Home Depot By Loss Prevention Media Staff Scott Glenn, JD, LPC, has been named vice president of asset protection at The Home Depot. Glenn was formerly the corporate vice president of asset and profit protection and chief security officer with Sears Holdings, where he was responsible for asset and profit protection, safety, business continuity, and crisis response functions, as well as online fraud prevention and payment systems. He began his career as an intern analyst with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) in 1990 (when it was still part of the US Department of the Treasury pre-9/11) before joining Target's asset protection team in 1991, where he served as an executive team leader. He then joined TJ Maxx as a regional investigator in 1996, managing organized retail crime and high-level internal investigations. In 1998, Glenn moved to Kohl's Department Stores, accepting roles of increasing responsibility and assuming loss prevention leadership as director for the southeastern and mid-Atlantic regions. Glenn joined Sears Holdings in 2008 as divisional director of loss prevention and safety, was promoted to senior director of loss prevention operations, finance, and analytics in 2009, divisional vice president for Kmart Corporation in 2011, and then to corporate vice president of asset and profit protection and chief security officer in 2013. Glenn is active throughout the loss prevention and asset protection community, serving as an executive board member with the Loss Prevention Foundation, editorial board member with LP Magazine, and board member with the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA). He holds a bachelor's degree in criminal justice from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and executive juris doctor in law from Concord University School of Law. The Home Depot is the world's largest home improvement retailer with nearly 400,000 orange-blooded associates and more than 2,200 stores in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The typical store averages 105,000 square feet of indoor retail space, interconnected with an e-commerce business that offers more than one million products for the DIY customer, professional contractors, and the industry's largest installation business for the do-it-for-me customer. Industry Pioneer Bill Cone Leaves Behind Admirers By Barry P. Grant, COO, Photos Unlimited Bill Cone regrettably passed away at age seventy-five on Friday, July 20, 2018. The industry has lost another legend and friend. Bill was the vice president of loss prevention for AutoZone where I had the distinct pleasure and honor to work for him as a young LP executive for nearly ten years. Bill was my mentor, my friend, and my inspiration in this business. His ministry to serve others was how he lived his personal life, as well as his professional life. Bill was a perennial loss prevention committee member and speaker at Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA, formerly the IMRA) and the National Retail Federation. He was the leader that brought many procedural ideas to AutoZone that made us a "best in class" LP organization, not only in our industry segment but also in all of retail. Many of those who worked under Bill went on to lead their own LP departments. What I learned most from Bill was his love and commitment to his team member's success and well-being. Bill first hired me as a young rookie, a week out of college. He took a chance on me when few in the industry would hire a 23-year-old to a district LP role. It was also Bill who gave me the confidence and knowledge to persevere and prosper and never give up. It was Bill that always pushed me and gave me encouragement that one day I could achieve anything I wanted in my career. He sent me and some of my colleagues to industry trade shows or encouraged us to submit articles to LP Magazine. He wanted us to get the credit for getting published or for getting a speaking role. He always gave his team credit for shrink reductions or for a great case we closed. Bill served our country in the Air Force, where an injury eventually led to him being honorably discharged. He was a graduate of the University of Georgia where he earned his bachelor's in business. He loved motorcycles, Georgia Bulldog football, and his place on Bear Creek on Pickwick Lake in Tennessee. He loved nothing more than his sweetheart of fifty years, Alice, his two kids, Tom and Shannon, and his six grandchildren. He will be sorely missed not only by this author but also by others who had the good fortune of knowing Bill Cone. Thank you Bill for everything you did for me, my family, and the loss prevention industry. Scott Glenn Seidler is managing editor, digital.
