Bryan Glover, Owner
Bryan Glover represents the third generation of Glover family ownership. Myron and Bryan have co-owned Mr. G’s Liquors since 2008. Prior to joining the family business, Bryan had a very successful career as a financial executive in the entertainment industry. After graduating from Purdue University Bryan joined the CPA firm of KPMG (formerly Peat Marwick Mitchell & Co) as an audit professional in their Los Angeles office. During his tenure at KPMG, Bryan obtained his CPA license and had the opportunity to work on clients in the financial services, not-for-profit and entertainment industries. His entertainment experience led him to Universal Studios in 1983 where he held several management positions until 1999. At the urging of a close friend, Bryan left Universal Studios for an opportunity to join Musicblitz, Inc., a start-up music company focusing on the still emerging world of on-line music. In 2002 another exciting opportunity in the music industry became available. Bryan joined BMG Music Publishing North America as Vice President of Finance.
In late 2006, Bryan began to get the urge to break away from his career as a corporate financial professional. Thoughts of moving back to Indiana after 28 years on the west coast had begun to creep into his thinking. During his time in California, Bryan had also begun to take a serious interest in wine. Visits to Napa Valley and Sonoma became a regular part of his getaway weekends. His career also gave him the good fortune to travel to Italy and France on a regular basis. His trips abroad always included visits to wineries and local establishments where he got the “wine bug.” In late 2006, while visiting his family in Indiana, Bryan shared an idea he had for a wine bar, possibly in the Noblesville area. At this time, Myron was in the midst of a major renovation and business expansion at Mr. G’s. Part of that expansion was going to a new commitment to growing the fine wine business at Mr. G’s. Several conversations ensued over a period of months and it became clear that the next course of his career should be joining the family business and helping achieve the goals Myron had set for Mr. G’s.
In 2008, Bryan became a co-owner of Mr. G’s Liquors. Together, with Myron and Kirk Baird, General Manager, they have built Mr. G’s into a dominant player in the Noblesville market. Bryan is especially proud of the extensive selection of beer, wine and spirits Mr. G’s has to offer. The management team of Myron, Kirk and Bryan stay on top of beverage trends and make it a point to be knowledgeable about the vast array of product the store has to offer. The first things customers always notice about the store is its friendliness, organization and cleanliness. Customers come first and Bryan wants everyone to have a personalized experience when shopping at Mr. G’s. Bryan is not an owner that stays out of the customer’s sight. You can visit Mr. G’s almost any day of the week and expect to find him there ready to help you have the best shopping experience possible.
When not at the store, Bryan enjoys biking, golfing, reading, history preservation, and of course, a nice glass of wine! Bryan also serves as a citizen member of the Noblesville Planning Commission and Board Member of Roberts Chapel Church & Burial Association.
Myron Glover, Owner
Myron Glover along with his father, Elijah Glover, and brother, Wayne Glover, opened Mr. G’s for business in 1977. The planning for this new family business began months before the doors opened as the father and sons immersed themselves in what they would need to know from investment and financing, licensing and compliance, real estate and operations perspective. Together they had to learn everything it would take to operate a retail business in a highly regulated industry. After all, this was the first entrepreneurial venture for Elijah, Wayne and Myron.
The early days were very long and full of challenges. Myron had a full-time career in the banking industry, as well as a young family to keep him busy. Wayne, previously an insurance salesman for Prudential Insurance, was the General Manager dedicated full-time to the new family venture. Elijah, a retired U.S. Postal Service employee, was the inspirational and guiding force to his sons. In the early days, Wayne was the day-to-day manager. Myron worked the retail side on weekends, but in between spent many hours planning strategy, financing requirements, and maintaining POS systems while keeping up with his career in banking as an Information Technology professional.
As Noblesville grew through the 1980s and 1990s so did Mr. G’s. Myron’s other career in banking as an Information Technology professional was also on the rise. Myron moved from the INB/National Bank of Detroit in the late 90’s to work for several other corporations as a IT systems manager, project manager and managing a team of IT communications and organizational change management professionals. After nearly twenty years in the business it came time for Wayne to retire. It was also a logical time for Myron to transition full time into the business. By the early-2000s it was clear that for Mr. G’s to grow its business a new strategy for expansion was needed. Myron drew upon his nearly 30 years of experience in the business world along with his connections to many industry professionals, bankers and close professional associates to plan a move and major renovation of the retail strip center Mr. G’s had called home for the past 20 years.
In February of 2007, Myron and his team moved into their current location at 2209 E. Conner Street in Noblesville. As a result of the renovations, Mr. G’s was able to redefine its business to the Noblesville community. While the same friendly atmosphere was present the expanded retail space was just in time for the explosion in craft beer alternatives, spirit innovations and wine consumption that was sweeping the marketplace nationally and locally.
Myron has always been active in the Indianapolis and Noblesville communities. In the past he served as President of the Indianapolis Urban Bankers, Board Member and Vice President of the Christamore House, Budget and Finance Committee for Community Centers of Indianapolis and Board Member of the Noblesville Chamber of Commerce. Currently, Myron is a Trustee at Bethel A.M.E. Church and is an active member of the Fifty Club of Hamilton County. In his free time Myron enjoys race walking, golf, travel, six grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren that keep him very busy.
