MARK DREISTADT

President | Chief Executive Officer

As the founder and President, Mark is the heart of Infinity Concepts. The foundation he has built inspires us all to dream bigger and work harder and to never settle for less than our best. During those rare moments when he is not working, Mark unwinds by playing the piano and singing, solving puzzles, and watching movies. Mark dreams about someday finding time to write at least one of the many books he carries around in his head.

Mark has had an interesting career. His first job was unloading truckloads of potato chips. He has been a record producer, studio musician, bank teller, song writer, piano tuner, youth pastor, print shop owner, CFO, minister of music, talk show host, and TV station manager. He founded Infinity Concepts in 2002 with one simple goal: to surround himself with the best people he could find to help other people achieve what they could not do on their own. Read More »

SUSIE DREISTADT

VP | Chief Financial Officer

Susie plays a vital role at Infinity Concepts, and we all love her for it; she signs our paychecks! In all seriousness, though, she enjoys being the head of the HR department and keeping our company finances organized and running smoothly. Her diligence is motivated by the knowledge that working for the Kingdom requires the very best.

Susie is seldom seen around the office without her adorable but mischievous puppy, Maggie the Marketing Wonder Dog. In her free time, Susie enjoys reading, watching movies, and spending time with her family.

Although usually laid back, Susie also enjoys a spirited snowball fight, but her most surprising talent is the ability to write backwards on an Etch-a-Sketch! She has a desire to travel more, especially overseas.
