TAMPA, Fla. – Moffitt Cancer Center announces the appointment of Tampa Bay Buccaneers Co-Chairman Bryan Glazer to its national Board of Advisors, a growing group of prominent individuals who serve as Moffitt ambassadors and offer their expertise and counsel on issues relating to the cancer center.
An instrumental figure in his family’s purchase of the Buccaneers in 1995, Glazer has been a driving force in improving every aspect of the club’s influence, both nationally and in the Tampa Bay region. An active participant in overseeing the day-to-day operations of the franchise, Glazer’s many accomplishments include his prominent role in the design and construction of Raymond James Stadium, securing Super Bowl XXXV (2001) and XLIII (2009) for the Tampa Bay area, and the completion of the team’s state-of-the-art training facility in 2006. The Rochester, New York native also was appointed by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to serve on the league’s Digital Media Committee. In addition to his NFL duties, Glazer also is on the Board of Manchester United, which has captured five Premier League titles (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013), as well as the 2008 Champions League title, during the family’s ownership.
Glazer also has been recognized as a community leader for the active role he has played in philanthropic efforts around the Tampa Bay area. He regularly appears at a variety of community and charitable events on behalf of the Glazer Family Foundation, which was honored as Foundation of the Year at the inaugural Tampa Bay Sports Commission Sneaker Soiree in 2011. In addition to serving on the Board of Directors of the Glazer Children’s Museum, Glazer also is on the Board of Directors Advisory Council for Ronald McDonald House, and he also served as Chairman of the American Heart Association’s annual Heart Ball charity event in the spring of 2011.
