The following answers most of the questions you’ve been asking about Lori Greiner’s husband, Dan Greiner.
Dan Greiner is a Low-Profile American Businessman
Lori’s husband, Dan Greiner, is a successful businessman in the United States of America, where he hails from. Unlike “the Queen of QVC,” who hails from Illinois in Chicago, Dan’s place of birth and exact date of birth is unknown. However, some online publications put his birth year as 1980, which means he is way younger than his wife Lori, who was born on December 9, 1969. Going by the date of birth given, Lori is 52-years old, and Dan would be eleven years younger than his wife.
Details of Dan Greiner’s parents and siblings are unknown basically because the businessman only came public following his marriage to the tv star Lori Greiner. His educational background is also unknown, but we know that he trained as an accountant somewhere in one of the universities in the United States of America.
Dan Worked with Bell + Howell before Settling at For Your Ease Only Inc.
Dan is now popular for his works at For Your Ease Only Inc, but before his exploit at the now-successful company, he worked with Bell + Howell – a U.S.-based services organization and a former manufacturer of cameras, lenses, and motion picture machinery. He worked there in the capacity of a division controller until he resigned to take up the position of the finance manager at For Your Ease Only Inc. There, he has successfully put to work his wealth of knowledge, transforming his wife’s ideas into an enviable business empire.
Before his work at Bell + Howell, Dan was said to have worked at the Name Grant Thornton Film as a supervisor. He worked there for three years in the accounting, packaging, shipping, marketing, and inventory department. At the time, his wife Lori was working in the company’s sales, legal, and marketing departments. For Your Ease Only Inc. only was until 1997, an idea Dan’s wife hoped to see come true. It came through a few years later after the jewelry company gained the attention of J. C. Penney, a department store company, and she patented it and made a deal with the company.
Dan and his wife’s company’s products include jewelry organizers, home innovations, fragrances, and other uniquely designed home accessories. Their products also appear in retail stores and catalogs. Currently, Greiner holds over 52 US and international patents. When Lori’s business efforts attracted the attention of the QVC network in 1998, needing her to further expand her empire, Dan was there to give his wife all the support she needed. She began her job on the shopping channel as a host of the Clever and Unique Creations, thereby gaining the nickname, ‘The Queen of QVC.’
It was not long before her success in the show caught the attention of various networks of the same nature. She eventually settled with the producers of the US television series, The Shark Tank, which led her to become part of the show in 2012 as an investor. Dan joined Shark Tank as an investor in the Beyond the Tank spin-off series.
