Ross Greinke is the son of Master Singers of Milwaukee founder Marlys Greinke and has been singing with the group for 30 years. He joined the MSM Board in 2002 and served as its President from 2014 to 2019; he also has served on the Artistic, Nominating, Marketing, and Grant committees. Although this summer, Ross will be moving to Florida to be near family, he will continue to be involved remotely/virtually with the Master Singers of Milwaukee, and may return occasionally to sing with the choir for significant concert events.
Ross attended St. Olaf College for two years, singing in the Viking Chorus and the Chapel Choir. After transferring to the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, he graduated with two degrees, a B.A. in Mathematics and a B.S. in Computer Science. He has been writing software since 1985 for the healthcare, asset management, and hospitality business sectors. He tries to learn one new computer language or computer technology topic every year. While working full-time, Ross moonlighted for a small startup company named ReServe Interactive, a web-based service platform used to manage event planning for catering companies and table management for dining and entertainment venues. He became a full-time employee of ReServe in 2014, which was recently acquired by Infor, the world’s largest deployer of cloud-based software.
Ross enjoys traveling, having visited Japan, France, England, Hungary, Italy, and the Czech Republic. When not working, singing, or traveling, he likes to relax by reading science-fiction books and watching science-based and science-fiction television series.
