Some 50 years ago , Peter Glenn, a famous model and scholar, began to compile and publish the resources that are still being published today. Peter Glenn Publications, which was formerly established in 1956, publishes resource directories and "How To" books for the Film, Fashion, Modeling & Talent industries.
From those early days, the resources of PGP were widely used and accepted by leading industry professionals such as Eileen Ford, Wilhelmina and the late photographer, Francesco Scavullo to name a few...Now you will find our resources on the desks of most media and advertising executives, modeling and talent agencies, casting directors, production companies and even on the set of the hit show "Just Shoot Me" as a standing prop. You can also find them available through your local bookstore or right here at the PGDIRECT Store.
In 1991, Peter Glenn, after a glamourous modeling career and the author of several books and directories passed away at the age of 69. Upon Peter's death, PGP was continued by life-long friend, Chip Brill. Chip Brill has been responsible for the creative and art direction for the last two decades. Under Chip's guidance, the company continued to grow and expand until it was sold to Blount Communications Corporation in January 1997 to Gregory James Blount. Gregory was then the Associate Publisher for the previous four years under Chip Brill, as well as being a former Zoli model and a graduate from The University of South Carolina with a film degree and has worked on such movies as "Days of Thunder" and "Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken". As a tribute to both Peter and Chip for their hard work, integrity and dedication, the company's name was kept.
In May 2011, Peter Glenn Publications celebrated our 55 years in business with the announcement of launching our directories on a series of iPhone and iPad applications for the creative and entertainment industry.
"Our publications can be found on the desks of creative professionals around the world and now we offer access to the creative and entertainment industry thru a variety of pathways using the latest technology. It is truly an exciting time for us!"
Gregory James Blount, President
