For as much as we know about Shark Tank star and so-called “Queen of QVC” Lori Greiner, we know so little about her husband, Dan Greiner. The TV personality’s spouse does a good job staying out of the spotlight, but off-camera, he’s right by her side.
He’s not just her beloved husband, though. Dan is also Lori’s colleague at her company, For Your Ease Only Inc. The couple has been working together for years, even before they tied the knot in 2010.
Lori and Dan’s romance goes back all the way to the mid-1990s when the couple met at a bar in Chicago’s trendy Lincoln Park area. According to reports, Dan was working as an assistant controller at a company called Bell & Howell Co. He eventually joined her company in 1999, and the two started dating.
The entrepreneurial pair — who don’t share any kids — were together for more than a decade before tying the knot in 2010. Since then, the reality star and the handsome hunk have established quite the successful life as workers and lovers.

Dan Is Successful
After leaving his former company Bell & Howell to work with Lori at her start-up For Your Ease Only in 1996, he’s since served as the vice president and chief financial officer. He was also a huge part of Lori’s rise to fame on QVC. From the moment she started hosting Clever and Unique Creations in 1998, he has helped her amass her huge fortune on QVC.
Dan Has a Massive Net Worth
Due to his work as an entrepreneur and financial guru, Dan has earned more than $50 million, according to reports. As for his wife, Lori is worth an estimated $100 million, Distractify reported.
Dan Knew Lori Was Mean to be a Star
After joining Lori’s company in 1999, Dan realized the business would be booming and soon signed on full-time. “I thought, ‘This is going to be big,’” he told Crain’s Chicago Business newspaper in 2009.
Lori and Dan Work Together
According to the newspaper, Lori and Dan share a partner desk in their Chicago home office — even though they live in suburban Philadelphia near the headquarters for QVC for six months of every year. Because they work so closely together, Dan has a front-row seat to the “look” Lori gets when she has a flash of inspiration. “It’s thoughtful, looking up in the sky, with a slight smile like she just figured something out,” he told Crain’s. “By dinner, she’ll be writing it on a piece of paper.”
Lori and Dan have been working together for more than two decades now, but they couldn’t share a better bond. “I am amazed at their relationship,” Patrice Urban, a director of the duo’s QVC sales, told the newspaper. “I love my husband, but I’d kill him if I had to be with him 24/7.”
They’re Demanding Employers
“You do get those late-night phone calls,” Patrice told Crain’s of her work with the Greiners, also noting ruefully that she signed non-compete and non-disclosure clauses when she started at For Your Ease Only. “I signed away everything.”
