About Us

Co-Founder / CEO


Matthew Brockmann is the Founder and CEO.  Matthew Brockmann is AG’s DPS Qualified Manager, an active PPO (Personal Protection Officer), and the licensed lead instructor for Atlas Glinn.

The name and culture of Atlas Glinn came from the combination of the inspirational and highly regarded book, Atlas Shrugged and Eli Glinn.  Eli Glinn was orphaned at the age of two (I was adopted at the same age), and found himself in a military academy, where he developed a thirst for great challenges, and solving extremely difficult problems.  Glinn came through the Airborne, then Rangers and was an intelligence officer.  His team was amongst  the best in the field during the Vietnam war.  Glinn developed a suite of computer programs that work together to predict how a single person will react in a given situation, using history, sociology, and statistics.  He called it Quantitive Behavioral Analysis.
This is how Atlas Glinn came to be.  I believe in deliberate work, mental and physical discipline.  In the commitment to a whole and individual thought.  I believe that you must train successfully to be successful, and that failure is a by-product of the repetitions that create success.  It’s the dedication we talk about with our kids.  It has to be the uncompromising commitment to excellence.  Find the reason in your life; protect it, because time is something we can’t buy back with an insurance policy or life insurance.  Atlas Glinn provides training, protection, investigations and other solutions to be proactive and insure your “valuables.”  Insurance is a noun. a thing providing protection against a possible eventuality.
