COLORADO SPRINGS – The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) announces the hiring of Tom Glause as its Chief Operating Officer and Director of Rodeo Administration. Glause will assume the position on May 15th and relocate to Colorado Springs, CO from his current residence in Cheyenne, Wyoming, where he worked for two Governors as the State Insurance Commissioner.
Glause brings 30 years of experience in both the public and private sectors as an executive leader and attorney with a strong financial background. He attended Casper College and the University of Wyoming on a rodeo scholarship as a saddle bronc rider. He received his associate’s degree in Business Administration and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting before going on to earn a Juris Doctorate at the University of Wyoming.
His involvement and commitment to rodeo is as compelling as his employment history. Glause was a PRCA contestant member, Mountain States Circuit Rodeo President and has held a variety of positions at Cheyenne Frontier Days, presently serving as Vice Chairman of its board of directors. Glause’s son, Seth, is a four-time NFR qualifier as a bull rider.
“It’s a great opportunity to join the PRCA team as COO and Director of Rodeo Administration,” Glause said. “I look forward to leveraging my skills and rodeo background to make a difference for our membership.”
