About Paul Brancky
Food Industry Marketing, Technology, and Sales Executive
In 1983 Paul and his wife, Laura, purchased their first home in Glenview for their growing family. Eighteen months later the Brancky family began a series of corporate relocations supporting Paul’s career. In 1991, the family returned to Glenview so Paul could accept a promotion at Kraft Foods. Paul and Laura are now the proud grandparents of five. Two of their grandchildren live in Glenview with their son and daughter in law.
As a former Kraft Foods marketing and sales executive, Paul spent more than 30 years helping to manage and build iconic food industry brands for the $2B North American Foodservice division. Paul is currently a business development consultant for a software and analytics firm serving the foodservice and hospitality industry. Since 2010 Paul has helped some of the most recognized food brands in the world improve their top and bottom-line results by utilizing proprietary data-driven technology.
Worked to Solve Local Flooding Issues
Paul became aware of the importance of local government when he and several Glenview neighbors struggled with serious repetitive flooding of their homes. Paul helped organize the efforts of his lower Pine St neighbors with South Circles neighbors that resulted in the funding to remove 18 flood-prone homes. In this effort, Paul and his neighbors effectively engaged with Village management, MWRD, and several state and local elected officials to pass state legislation necessary to fund this effort.
In 2015, Paul and Laura moved to their current townhome located in downtown Glenview where they enjoy easy access to the train, library, parks, restaurants, and shops. Paul is very much in favor of downtown development that is consistent with current zoning. He is opposed to the size and scale of the proposed 1850 Glenview Road project.
An Active Volunteer
Paul’s volunteer activity includes work at the Evanston Food Pantry and participating as a National River Day Volunteer at multiple events organized by the Village of Glenview Natural Resource Commission. For several years Paul coached Glenview Youth Baseball teams when his son was a participant. Until November of this year, Paul has voluntarily served as the secretary and treasurer of the Station Place Townhouse Condominium Association where he now lives.
