2018 Influential Women in Business: Fran Gladden
It was a mentor, Sharon Kleinpeter, who recruited and groomed Gladden in 2009 for her current position, overseeing governmental affairs for Cox Communications in Louisiana, Florida and Georgia. She’s also in charge of internal communications for Cox’s 2,000 southeast employees.
It’s the latest of many hats Gladden has donned over the years as she has watched Baton Rouge’s economic development landscape morph into what it is today—and what it will become in the future.
A Lake Charles native, Gladden moved to Baton Rouge in 1979 after graduating from McNeese State University with a bachelor’s degree in marketing. She has called the capital city home ever since, carving out a life here for her three now-grown children and husband of 32 years.
