David Greune, Vice President
Dave started Temporary Living Company with Mary Greune in the dining room of their home in 1996 and remains as Vice President today. Dave enjoyed a variety of careers which shaped his philosophies and business planning prior to launching TLC.
Dave is a graduate of Bowling Green State University where he majored in education and played a little hockey. He began his professional career as a special education teacher in N. Royalton, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland. He also taught elementary school before leaving teaching to start work as a pharmaceutical sales representative with Searle and then Glaxo. A promotion with Glaxo brought Dave and his family to Raleigh in 1992. He enjoyed 5 years as a manager of sales training at Glaxo’s headquarters in RTP before succumbing to a long simmering temptation to launch his own business.
Currently Dave is enjoying a more limited role with TLC but is still involved in all key decisions and helps all TLC’s employees focus on providing the outstanding customer service that has been the key to TLC’s success and growth for the past 20+ years!
