Glen Howie

Arkansas State Broadband Office: Director

Glen Howie is the director of the Arkansas State Broadband Office, where he serves as the chief broadband advisor to Governor Sanders. He is guiding the state’s broadband infrastructure and digital opportunity planning and implementation, an effort expected to exceed $1.2 billion over the next several years. Starting in his role in August of 2022, Glen came to Arkansas from the Louisiana Office of Broadband Development and Connectivity. In his introductory remarks before the Arkansas Legislative Council, he noted his office would work every day to ensure Arkansas becomes a “leader in the South” and a “Top Ten state in the country” in all things broadband. Glen holds an undergraduate degree in finance and a master’s degree in public administration from LSU. In June 2023, he was named as one of Arkansas Business’ 40 under 40. In his spare time (of which there is little), he enjoys going to the movies, news and politics, and hitting the golf course. Glen, his wife Julie, and their St. Bernard, “Sweet Tea,” reside in Little Rock.
