Gleni Bartels

During a post-college stint at Trader Joe’s, Gleni discovered that she loved connecting with people. (Yes, everyone really is that friendly.) As a senior project manager, she combines this affinity for interaction with a talent for organization and process. The result: an unstoppable force for getting things done.

At Thinkso, Gleni manages projects and programs for a diverse group of clients including, J.P. Morgan Private Bank and Radiant Logistics, among others. Her passion for the written word and all things editorial also makes her a strong addition to our agency, where the words are as important as the visuals.

Before joining Thinkso, Gleni spent a decade at some of the country’s top publishing houses, including Penguin Random House and Hachette Book Group. In various project management, editorial, and production roles, she organized and ran projects (and caught typos) for editors, authors, designers, and production staff. The books she worked on ranged from award-winning New York Times bestsellers to vegan cookbooks and sci-fi epics.

Gleni has a BFA in writing, literature, and publishing from Emerson College. When off the clock, she can be found on the hunt for her new favorite band, tackling an ever-growing pile of library books, or channeling her inner rock star at karaoke.
