MARSHA & JAY GLAZER, PRINCIPALS
Marsha and Jay are Washington residents and lifelong entrepreneurs. They operate and self-fund Proctor Lane Investments and its associated businesses. They have spent their entire life serving their local community by continuously investing resources in opening and developing new businesses from the bottom up, while supporting local charitable efforts. The Glazers and their families can account for more than $50 million in charitable giving throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Their entrepreneurial spirit runs deep, tracing back to Marsha’s parents, Samuel and Althea Stroum. Samuel founded ALMAC/Stroum Electronics and then owned and operated Schuck’s Auto Supply prior to its sale in the 1980’s. Marsha followed her parent’s entrepreneurial footsteps by becoming the financial principal behind Quality Food Centers Grocery Stores (“QFC”) before selling the chain of over 100 stores to Fred Meyer which was later acquired by Kroger.
Jay also comes from a family of entrepreneurs. His family owned and operated 18 Big Boy Restaurants. Prior to Proctor Lane, Jay owned and operated 17 retail stores in the Midwest and SVI Entertainment, a company that offered on-demand video systems to more than 500,000 hotel and hospital rooms nationwide.
