Glen Francis Wallace was born on the 7th November 1967 at Ferntree Gully, Victoria.
Glen started his life in the trucking industry at a young age as his father Frank owned trucks, during these years he was washing, maintaining and learning the basics of running a transport business.
After finishing year 12 in 1985 at Swan Hill Technical School, he went to Mingenew near Geraldton, Western Australia to work on a wheat farm. After coming back to Victoria he drove a semi for his parents company, who contracted for Greenways Transport carrying refrigerated goods all around Victoria, and this included some interstate work.
Greenways were later sold to Cleelands Cold Storage as they did not want contractors with more than one truck.
