Portrait of a distinguished citizen

Greg Kreizenbeck

Idaho native Greg Kreizenbeck soon will be spending much of his time commuting to a new position in San Francisco. In Boise, he can be proud of his many professional accomplishments and community involvement.

Born in Idaho Falls in 1946, Mr. Kreizenbeck received a bachelor's degree in business administration from College of Idaho. His only employer after a year of active duty with the Army has been The Terteling's security division while attending graduate school in San Francisco, where he received a master's degree in business administration from Golden Gate University.

In 1972, Mr. Kreizenbeck was named assistant manager of Terteling Marketing Inc. In 1976, he became manager of that firm, and in 1978, he was named president. In 1982, Mr. Kreizenbeck became a director and chief operating officer of The Terteling Co. Inc. His new job will be as president of Terteling Ventures Inc.


Mr. Kreizenbeck was elected a member of the Young Presidents Organization, a group of executives who by the age of 40 have become presidents of companies doing more than $4 million in business. Mr. Kreizenbeck is chairman-elect of the Idaho YPO chapter.

Mr. Kreizenbeck has given much of his considerable energies to the community. From 1974 to 1981, he was a member of the Boise City Planning and Zoning Commission, the last two years as its chairman. He served on the city's Design Review Committee from 1971 to 1974.

In 1982, Mr. Kreizenbeck served on Mayor Dick Eardley's nine-member blue ribbon committee on downtown redevelopment. He has been a member of the Greater Boise Chamber of Commerce since 1974 and has served on many of its committees and as a director. He was chairman of the transportation committee of the Boise Futures Foundation and is a director of the Bench Sewer District.

Mr. Kreizenbeck, his wife, Dede, and two children enjoy skiing, camping and fishing together. He especially enjoys restoring old Corvettes.
