Greg Hankerson

Co-Founder, Vintage Industrial Furniture

Greg is a Phoenix native. He had a seemingly normal childhood where he grew up working in the family investment banking business. At the age of 19 though, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor which was growing slowly and causing seizures. At 22, he had it removed. The operation was successful, but paralyzed one of his legs. Fortunately through physical therapy, he learned how to walk again. This experience gave him a zest for life and left him searching for the meaning of it all.

In his mid 30s, he quit the family business, even though he was slated to take it over. Money had little meaning in his life, it was more about finding a purpose. He started his own internet business, but it wasn’t until his wife Sim needed a patio table, did his purpose take form. The couple went from a backyard hobby to 20,000 square feet of warehouse in 2 years. Then on to 65,000 square feet currently with 20+ employees.
