Biography: Steve Greisen
In Steve’s unusually interesting career he has made the strange choice of pioneering new categories and markets. You’d think if he were really smart he would have chosen an easier route in life. However, great risk can reap great rewards. He has seen mind-boggling success in the Christian music industry before there was one, selling over a million records and helping launch an entirely new category of music- not an easy marketing task.
This was just the beginning of a long line of successful marketing achievements, from building successful direct marketing models to creating the most awarded productions company in Colorado. Steve has also created ground breaking and record-breaking results for many non-profit organizations.
As the founder of the production company Reel Productions, LLC in 1988 and the Inc5000 nominated international distribution company Exploration Films he continues to blaze new trails.
His unique approach is partly the byproduct of growing up in Hong Kong and traveling to 72 countries the world over. This has given him the sort of big picture perspective few can compete with. With Steve any limitation is not seen as a problem but another opportunity to celebrate a victory.
His family loves the mountains of Colorado, and Steve enjoys elk hunting each year with his friends Scott Renick, who happens to be John Wayne’s godson. He and his wife Nelly, a renowned singer, enjoy hiking, camping, and in the summer motorcycling Colorado’s back roads of stunning beauty. Both are avid deep-sea divers and fitness enthusiasts. He is the proud father of two grown sons, Andrew and Jesse, who also reside in Colorado.
