“I strongly believe a large portion of Localsearch’s success can be attributed to our team. Since day one, there has been such an emphasis on building a team who are passionate about helping small businesses.”

Glenn Hargraves has played a pivotal role in revolutionising small business marketing. Leveraging his entrepreneurial expertise, he not only pioneered Localsearch in regional Australia but also, more recently, embarked on redefining sports rewards through Winners Locker. 

Born in Melbourne, Glenn, a skilled entrepreneur, launched his career in 1992 in the United States with a private phone directory company, setting the stage for an impressive journey of entrepreneurship and innovation back home in Australia. 

In 1993, alongside his brother he co-founded what is now known as Localsearch, initially designed as an alternative phone directory for regional Australia. His unique local marketing approach made Localsearch Australia’s first of its kind. 

More than three decades on, guided by Glenn’s leadership, Localsearch has flourished into a 275+ strong team, headquartered in Robina on the Gold Coast, supporting over 300,000 Australian businesses. With plans to expand into Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne within the next 6 months, they show no signs of slowing down. 

As we move into a new and exciting space, I’m excited to continue revolutionising small business marketing in the digital world.
