Horse owner Marty Grunder discovered his entrepreneurial spirit as a young man with a lawn mower and grew that passion into a multi-million-dollar company. Along that journey, his success story was amplified by The New York Times and acknowledged with numerous honors, including three “Entrepreneur of the Year” awards by various institutions. He continues to serve as CEO of Grunder Landscaping Co. in Dayton, Ohio, employing and leading more than 40 individuals, but Marty’s true passion lies in working with other CEOs, organizational leaders, and business owners to help them drive results. Marty began owning thoroughbreds in the early nineties and raced primarily in Ohio. He lives in Dayton, Ohio, with his wife Lisa, three daughters Emily, Kathleen and Lillian, and son Grant and is active as a volunteer in his community.
