Public Notice Network: What do you enjoy most about the city?
Dave Glynn: I love Chicago as I’m down here every weekday. I love the music and there are so many great venues to hear it. I especially love Millennium Park and its festivals, especially Blues Fest. I’m a member of the Old Town School of Folk Music and City Winery, so
my wife, Lynne and I attend several concerts there each year.
PNN: Where’s your favorite place to eat in Chicago or its suburbs?
DG: I really enjoy Italian, so I have three faves: Tufano’s Vernon Park Tap, Italian Village, and a place near my house in Arlington Heights called Via Arenella. I’ll do anything for a good eggplant parmesan.
PNN: What are your hobbies outside of work?
DG: I’m a singer-songwriter and guitar player. I’ve been playing in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs since the late 1970s. For the last 20 years, I’ve been the leader of the Empty Can Band and we predominately play at night clubs, corporate events, and weddings in the Fox Valley. We have also played at Chicago’s House of Blues, the Hilton Grand Ballroom, the Hyatt Chicago Atrium, and the Bridgeport Arts Center. We play original music and classic rock and blues. I enjoy songwriting and recording. To extend my musical reach, I’m also on a non-profit board called the Fox Valley Music Foundation. I am excited that we are about to open a music venue in Aurora. And my other role is as the emcee for the annual Blues on the Fox festival in Aurora each June.
PNN: What do you enjoy most about your job?
DG: I enjoy my job because it’s different every day. It’s extremely creative since we have to constantly come up with new solutions to customer needs. I’m very fond of my co-workers.
PNN is a great team made up of hard-working, smart folks who really care about quality and
PNN: What do you find the most challenging about your job?
DG: Managing expectations of customers and end-users is probably the most challenging part. It’s also important to get it right – if it’s a new feature or a new solution in the software or website that we’re designing/developing. Listening closely to the needs of customer is key to our success.
PNN: What would you like clients to know about PNN (that they might not already know)?
DG: PNN is easily expandable. So, if the customer has a feature they want developed or they require a solution to a workflow problem, chances are we can address it in reasonable time.
