Lori Greiner is one of the most successful female investors in the US, but she wouldn’t have achieved this without her husband. Some men might feel intimidated by their spouse’s achievements but Dan isn’t that type of guy.
Dan Greiner is the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Lori’s main company, For Your Ease Only. As of 2023, Dan Greiner has a net worth of $50 million.
Though his wife is a reality television star, Daniel Greiner is a man who shies away from the spotlight. He was born around 1970 and was raised in Chicago, Illinois.
Other than that, there is not much known about his early life. He finished college around the same time Lori earned her bachelor’s degree. After college, he qualified as a certified public accountant (CPA).
Dan first met Lori in 1996 at a bar in Lincoln Park, Chicago. Shortly after that, they started living together. Dan was at Lori’s side when she created her signature earring organizer.
He continued to provide for his wife as she borrowed $120,000 against their home to get the business running. When it became a massive hit, Dan quit his day job to help Lori full-time. While Lori was in charge of production, he was managing the finances.
The pair formed a great team. The earring organizer made $1 million in a year and sold out after appearing on the Home Shopping Network. They set up For Your Ease Only in 1996 as a parent company to manage future products. Lori is the president and CEO, while Dan is VP and CFO.
By 2000, the couple was regularly promoting products on shopping channels such as QVC. As a result of their success, Lori Greiner is now considered the Queen of QVC. Lori took on the limelight as Dan worked in the background.
In 2009, Lori was chosen to be one of the investors on the ABC reality show Shark Tank. Since appearing in the series, she has invested early in companies that went on to become huge success stories such as Scrub Daddy and EverlyWell.
Dan Greiner sometimes appears in the spinoff series Beyond the Tank to finalize deals with the founders. Though he is rarely seen by the public, Dan is a big reason why Lori is where she is today.
Net Worth and Earnings
The majority of Dan Greiner’s wealth comes from For Your Ease Only, as he is an executive at the company. He has been with the firm since it was still a humble provider of jewelry organizers.
Now, it’s a thriving business with an array of different products, ranging from jewelry organizers to kitchen accessories. Currently, Lori has an estimated net worth of $150 million, and her husband is worth $50 million.
Dan and Lori lived together for a while before deciding to get married in 2010. The couple doesn’t have any children together. It’s possible, running a million-dollar business got in the way of starting a family. However, they own two homes: one in Chicago and one in Philadelphia.
