John H Ellers served as President 1968 - 1980.

The John H Ellers Holden dealership on Brighton Road was very well known ("John H Ellers is his name" being their catchy jingle) from 1960. The dealership was sold to the Hamilton family in 1988.

John H Ellers is described in The Pride of the Bay as

"President for 12 years in an era which saw Glenelg grow from a "social club" to one of the best football clubs in the country and something of a trendsetter, being the first club to appoint a board of directors, the first to offer full membership to women and first to appoint a full-time director of youth coaching."

He was awarded Life Membership in 1977.
