Sad news to report. Glen Giles of Hallmark Data Systems and the Western Fulfillment Management Association was killed in an apparent homicide. Giles, who previously worked at BPA Worldwide, ESP, Strategic and Hutchings, was a major national figure within the tight-knit world of magazine circulation. A prominent figure in b-to-b publishing, he was found stabbed to death across from his Burbank, CA house, on the porch of his neighbor’s house directly across the street. It appears that after he was stabbed at home, Giles managed to make his way across the street while attempting to get help. A suspect is in custody and friends were stunned that the 6’4″, 340 pound ex-varsity basketball player was stabbed. Giles, who was single, is survived by his sister, brother-in-law and mother.
