For more than two decades, Glassner worked closely with Senator Bob Dole, first as an intern and later serving as his senior advisor for Dole’s presidential campaign in 1996. After the election, Glassner joined Dole at the D.C. law firm, Verner, Liipfert, Bernhard, McPherson and Hand where he consulted for international clients, including the International Commission on Missing Persons. Glassner has also worked as senior advisor to the chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Recently, Glassner served as director of vice-presidential operations for the 2008 McCain/Palin campaign. He resigned from his position as Senior Vice President of President of External Affairs for IDT Corporation. IDT is a facilities-based multinational telecommunications carrier that provides a broad range of services to customers.
