Profile:
Glenn Wheatley (born 23 January 1948) is an Australian talent manager, entertainment industry executive and former musician.

Wheatley's first significant foray into music was as guitarist in the Brisbane pop band The Bay City Union, which was fronted by singer Matt Taylor (3). In early 1968, Wheatley was hired as the bass player in a new line-up of the Melbourne-based pop-rock band The Master's Apprentices, then one of Australia's most popular groups. Wheatley's four-year tenure with the group, which lasted until shortly before their demise in 1972.

In 1975 he set up The Wheatley Organisation and became the manager of a new Australian band Little River Band. In 1986, Wheatley began managing the career of John Farnham. Wheatley mortgaged his own house to help pay for the recording of Farnham's 1986 "comeback" album, "Whispering Jack". The gamble paid off and re-established Farnham as a major singing star and the album became (and remains) the biggest-selling Australian album of all time.
