Seldom do people come across individuals that have a knack for a talent that is absolutely opposite in nature. But Steven Rindner is one personality that has been able to juggle a career as an athlete and also a business strategist. Not only that he is also a runner and has participated in almost all marathon races that were within his reach and vicinity. When he is not into marathon races, one will find him inside a corporate office sharing his views on business development and growth. He has been offering invaluable advice to corporate identities engaged in different fields like healthcare, real estate services, media, and technology.
