Steven has established an impressive record throughout his years in the construction and development industry. Steven began his career directly out of The School of Architecture at Texas A&M University working in high rise construction, constructing commercial office and residential towers in Dallas, Houston and Memphis. After several years of building and developing for others, Steven made the decision to develop and build for his own account. Founding Surecap LLC, Steven developed urban infill retail and mixed-use projects in Northern California, Kentucky and Texas. Currently Steven works as the Vice President of Cumby Construction where he is responsible for growing the team that is satisfying the insatiable demand for residential product in central Austin. Steven was drawn to Cumby Construction due to their ability to identify and control premium residential properties within close proximity to downtown Austin.
Early on Steven was a competitive sailor. Although currently living miles from the closest ocean, Steven grew up near the water which landed him on the deck of several racing boats taking him hundreds of miles offshore where he competed for trophies and sailing stories. Steven has sailed the North Atlantic, the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and to the tip of the South Atlantic. Currently Steven enjoys semi-empty nesting with his wife Wendy, pursuing travel, cooking and entertaining. On the weekends you can find the Griessens enjoying Lake Austin on their boat or at their beach house on the Texas coast.
