Key Personnel

Stefan Gleason — President of Independent Living Bullion

Gleason launched Independent Living Bullion while president of American Lantern Press, a well-established publisher of newsletters, manuals, and reports. From 2006 to 2013, Gleason guided the dramatic growth of Independent Living newsletter, a self-reliance oriented publication helping subscribers protect their freedoms, assets, and privacy. The public has embraced Independent Living Bullion as its low-cost and honest supplier of precious metals coins, bars, and rounds. ILB now has over 20,000 customers and $100 million in annual sales.

Gleason previously served as Vice President of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation in Springfield, Virginia, from 1999 to early 2010. As the first strategic litigation organization in the individual rights and free enterprise movement, the Foundation has led the national legal battle to block the expansion of union special privileges over workers and the U.S. economy since 1968. In addition to managing fundraising programs and many of the internal dynamics of the Foundation's $7 million-a-year operation, he was the Foundation's primary spokesman on a number of critical, high-profile legal cases, some of which were heard by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Gleason has frequently appeared on national television shows and networks such as Fox News Channel's O'Reilly Factor and Special Report with Brit Hume, CNBC's Closing Bell, Christian Broadcasting Network, CNN, and C-SPAN's Washington Journal. He has frequently been interviewed on national radio shows such as the Lars Larson Show, Michael Reagan Show, G. Gordon Liddy Show, and Ken Hamblin Show.

Gleason's articles and expert comments have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Detroit News, Washington Times, and National Review, among thousands of other national, state, and local newspapers, wire services, and Internet sites.

A seasoned investor, personnel manager, political strategist, and grassroots activist, Gleason is also a graduate of the University of Florida with a BA degree in Political Science.
