Mr. Glickman joined the Office of Corporate Relations/ILP in January 2000, and was promoted to the senior management team in 2005. Currently he supervises a group of ILP Officers who manage company relationships worldwide, including all of greater China and southeast Asia. Many of ILP’s aerospace/defense companies are managed by his group.

Prior to joining ILP, Todd was Assistant Executive Director of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), the professional society for meteorologists, which is based in Boston. At AMS, Todd's responsibilities included strategic planning for conferences, headquarters' liaison with AMS member boards and committees, support to the AMS Council, and public relations. In addition, Todd was Managing Editor for the AMS Glossary of Meteorology (2nd edition).

From 1979 to 1994, Todd held a variety of positions with WSI Corporation of Billerica, MA, including Manager, New Product Development, Media Marketing Manager, and Manager of the Government Program Office. WSI was a pioneer in the development of real-time weather information, providing value-added information and workstations for clients in media, aviation, industry, academia, and government. Some of Todd's projects included development of the weather data/information infrastructure for The Weather Channel; the introduction of digital satellite and radar imagery for television; planning and implementation of a network of weather briefing systems for the Federal Aviation Administration; and serving as liaison with the National Weather Service and professional organizations. In addition, Todd was instrumental in helping to develop the public-private partnership between the weather information industry and the Federal government.

Concurrently, Todd has a more than 35-year career as a radio meteorologist, and has been on dozens of stations nationwide. Today, he can be heard occasionally on all-news WCBS Newsradio-880 in New York City. He has chaired numerous meteorological conferences and symposia, and served on many boards and committees for the AMS. He was awarded the AMS Seal of Approval for Radio Weathercasting in 1979, was elected a Fellow of the AMS in 1997, and also earned the designation Certified Broadcast Meteorologist.

Todd's interests include transportation systems of all types, and he is an officer and past-trustee of the Seashore Trolley Museum of Kennebunkport, Maine. At MIT, Todd is an officer and trustee of the Technology Broadcasting Corporation, that oversees the campus radio station WMBR-FM. He has served as an academic advisor to a group of MIT freshman, and is the PA announcer and a reader of degree-recipients’ names at MIT Commencement.
